Here at PMO Learning we have some exciting events coming up in 2021 for those who are looking to set up and establish a successful PMO.
On the 20th of January, our Directors Lindsay Scott and Eileen Roden are hosting a free evening webinar looking to provide an insight into setting up a PMO.
With more and more organisations investing in a PMO structure to support projects, programmes and portfolios, this session focuses on the setting up of a PMO on a greenfield or brownfield site.
We take a look at the roadmap for success and focus on the answers to these questions:
- What kind of PMO is required?
- What resources are needed to implement a PMO successfully?
- What skills and capabilities should be in place to build the right PMO?
Insights are shared from the PMO profession including the realities shared from attendees from the PMO Learning Setting Up a PMO course.
Attend the session if you are interested in what elements form a successful PMO set up; the skills needed within the PMO and how the PMO contributes to successful delivery.
Eileen Roden and Lindsay Scott will be hosting the webinar session; with over 30 years of PMO experience between them, you’ll be sure to benefit from their wealth of experience. Eileen’s approach ensures that a pragmatic approach is taken to programme and project delivery, grounded in research and best practice, tailored to suit the culture and maturity of the organisation. Lindsay has worked in and around project management and PMO for 20 years and is a Director at PMO Learning; founder of PMO Flashmob and the annual PMO Conference event. She’s also a Director at Arras People, the project management recruitment specialists. You can read more about them here!
PMO Learning Course
Coming up on 15-16th February PMO Learning is hosting a two day course, Setting Up a PMO, which walks you through the practical steps in the set up of a PMO. Delegates will benefit from a raft of tools, techniques and templates to establish a consistent approach to project management within their organisation. The course also covers Programme Office and Portfolio Office as an extension as the roadmap can be used for the set up of these types of PMOs.
The course covers a roadmap which allows delegates to set the direction of their PMO set-up based on their situation, either right now or in the future when they move onto another organisation. Using a roadmap is pretty much what any PMO consultant uses when they’re tasked with setting up a PMO. The roadmap drives which questions to ask and how to take those answers and provide a PMO solution that is right for that particular business.
This hands-on course and workshop covers a variety of topics, including, Governance of Project Management, The Role of the PMO, The Project Management Framework and The PMO Implementation Roadmap.
Each step along the roadmap – from clarifying the request or need for the PMO through to the rollout and embedding and improving the PMO – is covered in the course.
Here’s what our delegates have to say about our Setting Up A PMO course,
It really goes back to the start of setting a PMO up and carries you the whole way through.
We hope to see you at our evening webinar session in January and are looking forward to helping you in Setting Up a PMO in your organisation!
