The Clairvoyant PMO: How to Build the Support of the C-Suite
We have another PMO Flashmobber who attended Project Challenge the other week – Fran Bodley-Scott – and she shares some of the insights she learnt from Project Challenge.
Survey results might seem a bit dry and unexciting first thing in the morning but last week at Project Challenge I’m glad I made the effort to arrive in time for Michael’s Cooch’s presentation about the results from PwC’s Annual Global CEO Survey. I specialise in stakeholder relationship management, so I’m always on the look out for hints about what’s keeping the C-Suite awake at night, and this presentation didn’t disappoint. The reason I want to highlight it is that the insights were a real gem for any PMO seeking to engage more effectively with their CxO’s.
I don’t plan to reproduce PwC’s data here – the link above will lead you to lots of interesting stuff (disclaimer: I have no connection with PwC so this is my independent view). Consider this as a business case for why PMO’s should be plundering this sort of data shamelessly.
