Workshop Details

Take a Comprehensive Approach
Creating Operational Alignment with Terry Doerscher
The primary objective of any PMO is to facilitate effective collaboration across the many different project stakeholder groups involved in managing the lifecycle of change. To achieve this, a PMO needs to create alignment on multiple levels, from effectively conveying organizational objectives, to establishing consistent operations and fostering commitment to shared values. This workshop explores methods and tools that can help your PMO develop and maintain a higher degree of strategic, functional and cultural alignment to improve operational efficiency and effectiveness.

Create a Business Driven PMO
Business Driven PMO Success Stories with Mark Price Perry
There is no surer way to invite PMO difficulties than to rush into a cookiecutter “people, process, tools” strategy and to “sell the PMO” – an approach still advocated by many today. This workshop engages participants in a highly interactive session that reveals common misguided strategies and offers practical insights, techniques, and PMO success story case examples for how to set up and manage a successful, business driven PMO. Attendees of this session will receive of copy of the book Business Driven PMO Success Stories – Across Industries and Around the World (Perry, 2013) which features new PMO research and findings by the author as well as 27 business-driven PMO success stories by PMO managers across industries and around the world.
