Opening Keynote – The Business Driven PMO – Testing Your Convictions – Mark Price Perry

There is no surer way to invite PMO difficulties than to rush into a PMO model and people, process, and tools strategy accompanied by efforts to sell the PMO. Yet, despite lack of success, this is an approach still advocated and taken by many today.

Based upon Perry’s years of PMO research and his three book series, Business Driven PMO Setup and Management (2009), Business Driven Project Portfolio Management (2011), and Business Driven PMO Success Stories (2013), published by J. Ross Publishing, this presentation engages participants in thought-provoking case studies and examples, that reveal, challenge, and correct common misguided PMO setup and management approaches.

If you are setting up a new PMO, seeking to improve an existing PMO, or in a highly mature PMO, this presentation will test your convictions, offer you different insights and ideas, and leave you with many “aha” moments that you can apply in the workplace.

Takeaways:
A new, outside the project management community, perspective on the purpose of the PMO
A new way of thinking about how PMOs can be set up and managed
A roadmap consisting of three steps, two tips, and one Golden Rule that will ensure a successful and business-driven setup and management of the PMO
