Following the Summer Series session on Hybrid Delivery (https://houseofpmo.com/members/library/hybrid-delivery/) one of the key areas which stimulated many questions and debates was the area of reporting. It is also a current problem we’re trying to solve with the community adding their thoughts and insights. In this session we pull together a panel of different PMO practitioners […]
Setting up, running and closing down a PMO - those are the main themes in Bill Dow's popular and practical book - The PMO Lifecycle.
We're delighted to have Bill join us in this PMO Book Club session and he will be specifically focusing on the running a PMO part. He'll be focusing on areas such as executive level reporting; managing PMO resources and looking at the day-to-day operations in running a PMO.
It's not often we focus on the actual day-to-day operations of a PMO - setting up a PMO seems to be the one that is often in the spotlight - so it'll be good to talk about dashboards and scorecards; think about weekly checklists, and metrics and performance.
This session forms part of our PMO Book Club - you can purchase the book, join this session with the author and then join us for the PMO Book Club on the 29th September to discuss it.
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

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.
