Hold On Tight for the PPM Tool Project

A few weeks back it was the PMO Flashmob in Edinburgh and the session was all about PPM tools. The session was held at Sainsbury’s Bank -thanks to Maggie McGreary for hosting it – and thank you to Nicole Reilly for letting us (hopefully) learn from her experience when it comes to the PMO gaining a brand spanking new PPM tool.
These sessions about tools can be either deathly boring or a sales pitch – but we found a third way. A practical session on what to think about and plan when it comes to you and your organisation implementing a PPM tool. This is the PMO’s view – from someone who has worked in many PMOs and has done many PPM tool implementations.
The honest questions to be asked and answered gives you a big insight into this session: To see the full video session and presentation file, take a look at Getting Tooled Up here.
