This presentation provides three foundational building blocks for Business Driven PMO Setup and Management that PMO professionals need to master in order to understand and work with their leadership teams.
(1) the purpose of the PMO
(2) the purpose of project management
(3) where PMOs can fit within the organization
Though these building blocks may seem self-evident or even simplistic, research which will be shared shows that in practice most project management and PMO professionals fail to understand and apply these foundational basics resulting in a PMO mindset that is limited in value and narrow in application.
This presentation will also correct the misguided and outdated notion of projects as change the business and operations as run the business with an organizational-wide (CHANGE the business, RUN the business, REACT to the business) view of where projects and PMOs exist throughout the enterprise.
And lastly, this presentation will wrap up with a call to action for PMO practitioners in the form of key knowledge to acquire, skills to masters, and PMO career opportunities to seize.
