PMO Conference 2018 \\ Strategies and Practices for Change and Transformation: How the PMO Can Play a Pivotal Supporting Role – Deanne Earle and Francesca Valli

Change is an all-encompassing word used to describe the impact to processes, people and target operating models. This can make it confusing to those who support its implementation.

This makes change everyone’s business. We believe the PMO is not only perfectly placed to support change but can help lead the way. Because, when the PMO understands the science behind change management and can recognise when it’s needed, it can ‘plug in’ sound change strategies, practices and thinking at the heart of every project and outcome delivered. The PMO can broker the connection between change management and project delivery assuring effective practices are in place. This session will help PMO leaders learn how to develop their own and their teams’ competencies and ability to support change.
