Latest News -18th May 2022
We have now launched the latest qualification – Essentials for PMO Managers – and you can take a look at what that qualification covers. Simply put, the Essentials qualifications focus on the practical elements of how to do the job.
That leaves the final one in the series for PMO Directors, that one will be available from June 2022.
We also celebrated our first birthday last week – yes there was cake but also insights into the plans for the coming year. There was also a big thank you for all our members support over the last 12 months – together we’re getting settled into our Home. Why not check out the video session?
We also share a lodger session from Graham. He’s passionate about working with the next generation PMO practitioner and you can see him talking to James, a new addition to the PMO community.
Finally, with just a few weeks to go, the PMO Conference is nearly ready to open its doors. Remember what its like to be in a room full of PMO people, all happy to be together to learn and share? One visitor said last year, “We honestly got SOOO much from it and have been raving about it ever since returning to work yesterday! We’re on the verge of being banned from some Teams calls!”
We can’t wait to get inspired once again. Make sure you don’t miss out.

A key topic area for many PMOs right now – working with the Agile approach.
There have been two prominent areas of learning, discussion and sharing of insights around Agile.
The first, how does the PMO support both traditional projects and projects which have adopted the Agile philsophy or approach? Questions like how to report on both; how to realise benefits; what happens with the business case?
The second, how does the PMO support Agile-at-scale, so focusing on the portfolio management level, what does the PMO need to do to support the business and help make all projects successful.
At the heart of what House of PMO is all about – helping PMO professionals to develop themselves in their careers.
There are so many different aspects of our careers and over the years we’ve shared lots of practical insights, advice and tips.
We’ve covered everything from practical tips on creating a great PMO CV; developing yourself in your role; courses to consider doing; continuous improvements; different career paths; networking – you name it we’ve covered it.
How many times do you hear the words “adding value” when it comes to the work the PMO does?
It’s one of those phrases that makes little sense until you start to dig into what the PMO does – do they do it successfully – and is it needed by the business?
The whole theme of metrics and measures was one of our Inside PMO reports and it’s an area we often revisit as PMOs are looking for the key to maturing their services and really delivering what is written in their mandate.
We grabble with the objective and subjective measures – the tangible and intangible – the metrics that belong to the PMO and the ones that are project and programme owned.
Then there’s the metrics and measures for the PMO team and the leader – which measures can be attributed fairly?
