The PMO Supporting Sponsors
The Sponsor (programme or project) is a key player in programme and project delivery, but many PMOs still aim their services at the Programme and Project Managers.
Why is that? Is the PMO missing a vital customer – arguably one of the most important roles in the whole delivery chain?
During this session, we took a look at some of the reasons why this is and how to overcome them.
We considered the key value-added services that can be offered by the PMO for the benefits of the sponsor – and what’s needed by the PMO team in terms of skills and experience to support that.
This session is a good one for anyone working in a PMO which offers services to the business – whether that’s at project, programme or portfolio – and for PMO practitioners looking to up their value by working with and supporting senior management.
The session was delivered by Eileen Roden – she’s also delivering the PMO Learning Project Sponsorship and the PMO course so you’ll gain some great insights. (If you’re interested in the course, use the code #pmof-sponsor to get an extra 10% off.)
