How to build the best PMO for your business and keep it relevant (One Day Course) This workshop aims to aid all would-be and current PMO leaders. As a PMO leader myself, three greenfield PMOs developed in the last 8 years) I know that this can be a really rewarding experience, but not an easy one to find the right line to balance the projects and the business demands. The workshop is about successfully leading a PMO (whatever you understand by those three letters) to deliver better projects, better business to the customers of those projects and to the organisation that you work for, and to best serve the contributing project managers from both a professional and a personal perspective. The workshop will explore some of the research carried out by myself for my new book ‘Leading Successful PMOs’ (Gower). The book brings together the experience and views of PMO leaders from around the world and the project managers that work within the PMOs, as well as those who are now seeking leaders for their PMOs. Together in the workshop we will identify what it is that successful PMO leaders have and do that allows them to be successful and how the rest of us can learn from those proven experiences.
