The Heptagon

Welcome to the Heptagon!

Here at the Heptagon, Lain is here to help with Benefits Realisation, Demand Management and Value Stream Flow.

This room is for Heads of PMO, PMO Managers, PMO Leads and PMO people who are desperate to make a difference.

If you’re feeling trapped in Admin-Compliance Island. Knowing you want to add real value, having some idea of how to do it, but being unable to experiment due to the volume of low value work that “must be done”. We’d love to help you gain the credibility to be seen as a trusted delivery partner and take your seat at the table.

What is the biggest, hairiest challenge you are facing?

The biggest frustration is that, after all these years, so many PMOs at every level are still all about the methodology and the standards rather than about alignment to the business.

A rumbling underground frustration that doesn’t go away is that, even among PMO professionals, we mean such different things by “PMO”. There is, of course, a common thread running through them all, but it is difficult to agree nuts and bolts when the specifics are so different in each case.
