We're back! Join us for the in-person meetup and networking evening right in the heart of London's Westminster.
This evening's session kicks off from 5.30pm until 9pm. The focus for the evening will be 'PMO Leadership' and it takes place straight after the session being held at Project Challenge
It's an opportunity for any PMO practitioner to meet other likeminded people as we chat and share our experiences over drinks and nibbles.
On the 28th September, we're celebrating Ask A Stupid Question Day!Yes really, it's a thing!
Now's your chance to ask anything you like about PMO. It doesn't matter what, don't be shy, no question is really a stupid question:
"(There's) no such thing as a stupid question" is a common phrase, that states that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others, they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases, multiple people may not know, but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.
In this session we are with lodger Graham and we'll be going through the many quesitons that people have submitted.
You can get involved by submitting your question right here.
Join us in the latest PMO Book Club session. This time we're looking at The PMO Lifecycle, the book from Bill Dow. To take part in the author session on the 15th September, please visit the Events page and book directly.
In our book clubs we explore different themes of the book and get into conversations and debates, digging deeper into the content and thinking about how the book affects our day-to-day work in PMO.
Like all our Book Club sessions, you don't need to have read the book to gain lots of great insights from this session.
If you would like to purchase the book in advance of the session you can purchase it here - The PMO Lifecycle.
A clear strategy can enable PMOs to play an essential role in achieving organizational goals towards corporate excellence and sustainability. The higher the expectations, the higher the complexity…as commitment by both the organization and individuals is required since there is no, one size fits all. A strong Transformation PMO, blended with portfolio management is a catalyst for the creation of value & furthering strategic goals, building performance-sustaining capabilities that empower an organization
In this short lunchtime session, we’ll be discussing the top 5 TLAs you are likely to come across when working within PMOs and learning a little more about them. If you wish to nominate one for the top 5, do let us know!
We're joined by Stuart Easton who will kick off with a project prioritisation mini-masterclass - what is it all about? What are the common pitfalls and challenges that organisations and PMOs struggle with?
Stuart will delve into the high-performing organisations to see what it is they're doing and what lessons can be learnt before leaving us with some of those quick wins.
In this session we take a look at the roles of PMO Administrators, Project Support Officers and Project Co-ordinators and reveal the top five things that really help people in these roles do a great job. Join us for this free session!
Does your PMO want to offer a better service around risk management? Get better at risk analysis; challenging assumptions; being aligned at project, programme and portfolio levels; supporting strategic risk identification. The list goes on.
In this session we’re joined by risk management expert John Greenwood. John has worked in this field for the last decade and a half, following a career delivering projects and programmes, and rescuing business from the consequences of unmanaged risks.
Risk management is becoming ever more important in the preparation, planning, and delivery of programs and projects, as organisations demand greater certainty (or an understanding of the uncertainty) of delivery times and costs.
Tools and techniques used for risk management have progressed over the last decade or so, moving the practice of risk management on from the probability/impact diagrams of old, with the availability of cheap computing power capable of performing sophisticated analyses of delivery plans.
John will outline the three main objectives of risk management, and provide an overview of how the risk management processes support delivery of these objectives, and discuss their integration with the wider project controls and PMO disciplines.
An exclusive House of PMO member event which takes place bi-monthly.
This hour session gives you the opportunity to take part in a session which is 100% focused on PMO careers.
You have the option to add a question of your own or just join in and take part in the career-related discussion.
The first part of this month's session is dedicated to one aspect of PMO careers, decided on by members - the second part, to answering member questions.
We all have something to share from our own personal experiences and we definitely take away something when we hear what has worked for others.
This session is open to anyone interested in career management - at any level of PMO experience - and within any role.
Registration required - free to paid members
