New in the knowledge library this week is our latest PMO Career Hour. This week the focus was on Interviewing PMO People.

We covered off areas such as the questions to ask, the tips and pointers on how to interview well and things to think about if you’re interviewing for people yourself such as the bias in play.

The second article making its way into the library is The Top Five Things that Make a Great PMO Analyst.

In this session we take a look at the roles of PMO Analysts, Project Support Officers and Project Co-ordinators and reveal the top five things that really help people in these roles do a great job.

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.

Agile PMO

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.

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?
