The PMO’s First 90 Days – Post COVID-19
In last week’s #PMOwfh we took inspiration from the bestselling book, The First 90 Days from Michael D. Watkins.
John has done a great write up about the book itself and you should head over there immediately for a great read.
The book specifically focuses on critical success strategies for starting a new role as a leader.
We thought how useful is this as we emerge from the pandemic so we set about getting PMO practitioners to think about this themselves.
Whether you are a contractor starting a new gig, or a PMO person returning from a period of being furloughed, or you’re going to be starting something completely new in a permanent role – we explore the first 90 days.
How will you create value? What are you there to do? What is your mandate? What do key stakeholders expect of you… over what time-period? How will your performance be measured?
The critical success strategies outlined fall into 9 key areas:
Accelerate your learning
Match strategy to the situation
Secure early wins
Build your team
Keep your balance
