#PMOwfh / Checklists
In this month’s #PMOwfh we decided on a theme to take us through the session. It was all about checklists!
There has been a recently released book that many have read and really enjoyed, it’s called The Checklist Manifesto: How To Get Things Right.
It got us thinking. Checklists used to be really popular in the PMO but over the years checklists started to have negative connotations – using checklists was seen as the clipboard wielding PMO acting like the ‘PMO Police’, a bureaucratic form of control which did us no favours with our project managers and various stakeholders.
The book reminded us that there are a number of different reasons for having checklists. The PMO can use them to help delivery and we can also use them to help us develop our PMO and the people working within it.
