PMOs: Perform or Perish

Why do some companies value project management more than others? 

Despite a 2017 PMI® report projecting a 25% increase in project management jobs in U.S. project management industries through 2027, there’s no guarantee your project management office (PMO) will still exist or provide value. 

Whether you’re early in your project management career or are thinking already about leaving a successful legacy behind when you retire, it’s probably very important to you that your company’s leadership sees the value of your project management skills and expertise and views the PMO as a strategic and competitive advantage. 

This presentation will cover the key attributes of a successful PMO including a relentless focus on partnership and relationships; driving innovation; robust strategic alignment and measurements; and continuous (sometimes painful) evolution.  See practical, effective processes and tools to implement and learn how to begin adopting the missing elements today to position yourself and your PMO as critical components of your company’s success.
