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
Throughout the year, the Book Club has brought you books and authors we think you might find interesting and useful in your PMO role. In November, we're asking you to open up your libraries to share with fellow PMOers which books you've loved, liked or loathed. We're doing it on the 28th November for everybody to have plenty of time to add any recommendations to their Christmas list.
If you're interested in talking for 10 minutes (or 2 minutes) on any book, get in touch!
