The PMO Hierarchy of Needs and Effective Learning – Emma-Ruth Arnaz-Pemberton

    How do PMO people learn? Most courses teach us through presentation with a number of exercises; where at the end our memory skills are tested. Effective? For the training team; yes. But what if there was another way for the learner? Accountability is key to true learning power – so what if instead we utilized an approach that allowed learners to do some reflective practice, apply their critical thinking techniques, then were made accountable for delivering through project-based learning(PBL) and mentoring? Considering Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, the Ebbinghaus forgetting curve, and the fact that we are humans first, PMO second; this presentation will provide an insight into how best to invest in training for our people, getting true Return on Investment for the organization, whilst developing key personal and Leadership skills. Making better PMO people.
