PMO practitioners around the globe are invited to celebrate their PMOs and their work on a newly established International Day of recognition.
International PMO Day – established in 2023 – is about recognising, highlighting, promoting, appreciating, and celebrating PMOs in organisations today.
It’s a special day dedicated to PMO and raises awareness about the importance of the effective support of project, programme and portfolio management, promotes best practices, and recognises the valuable work and contribution of PMO professionals across the globe.
International PMO Day is not just for those leading and working in PMOs – it’s also a day for people who appreciate the work they do such as delivery teams and senior executives – and for companies and suppliers that support PMO work through services, software and development.
Several leading PMO organisations and professionals, passionate and committed to the profession of PMO, established International PMO Day together.
The House of PMO got involved for one simple reason:
“International PMO Day is for anyone who believes the PMO makes a difference in the successful delivery of change in organisations and wants to shout about that, to celebrate and put PMO in the spotlight. We want to support that day so everyone in the change business can see the diversity of PMOs today and the difference they’re making in every type of organisation and business across the globe.”
How to Get Involved
There are numerous ways you can get involved – as an individual, a PMO team, an organisation or anyone who recognises and works with PMO professionals.
You can take a look at the different ideas available on the International PMO Day website. Ideas range from just a simple team photo shared with #intPMODay – the hashtag for the day; showing appreciation for the PMO team with a gift or cake; organising a community of practice day celebrating the successes or getting involved in online events on the day.
The House of PMO will be getting involved throughout the day, sharing celebrations from the UK community plus organising a special event for the day.
