About the Presentation

Great!  So, you have been charged with building and running a PMO for your organization.  You've got tools, you know about best practices, and you have templates coming out of your ears.  Now what?  What are the things that you must do to help your PMO become a change management powerhouse for your company?  

Our journey begins with the science side of PMO development by exploring the foundational building blocks necessary for your PMO and how to avoid the common pitfalls that lead to PMO disaster.  Next, we will transition to the art of a great PMO.  This is where organizational savvy, strong talent management and strategic change leadership come into play.  You will walk away from this presentation understanding what the key building blocks are that will make your PMO an effective and sustainable change management solution for your company.

 

Join us as we explore both the art and science of what makes PMOs an invaluable resource for strategy realization
