In this session, Eileen kicks off with an overview of the evolving role of the PMO and the difference in PMO role with portfolio management – is it at a supporting level or the next step further up the chain with a portfolio guidance role?

The PMO Supporting Change Webinar

6th October 2020

Projects, supposedly, are all about delivering change, but it can often feel that the primary focus is on producing the deliverables to time, cost and quality. Change in the context of a project has many connotations – business change, change management, management of change, change control.

During this webinar we did with the British Computer Society (BCS) we looked at change from three different perspectives – that of the Project Sponsor, the Project Manager and the Business User and how they are ALL required for project success.

During the session, Eileen covered off some theory and some practical hints and tips.

Continuing Professional Development for PMO Practitioners Webinar

25th February 2020

When someone says ‘Continuing Professional Development’ to you, what’s your first reaction?

Are you thinking of training courses? Collecting points to maintain a professional membership? How about ‘lifelong learning’?

In this webinar, we asked registrants what it meant to them and what was the last thing they did that was about Continuing Professional Development (CPD)?

We share their insights along with details about the 70-20-10 model which is used to find those sources of learning that help us develop professionally.

We looked specifically at what activities exist within the 70% – which is about learning on the job; 20% which is learning from others and 10% on formal training.
