Seminar Description

Day 1 AM Session: Business Driven PMO Setup. Instructor: Mark Price Perry
There is no surer way to invite PMO difficulties than to rush into a cookie‐cutter “people, process, tools” strategy and to “sell the PMO”—an approach still advocated by many today. This workshop first engages participants in a highly interactive session that reveals and corrects common misguided PMO strategies, while highlighting select opportunities to make your approach more agile. Perry will also present a bouquet of real‐life PMO success stories based upon his third book in the Business Driven PMO series, Business Driven PMO Success Stories (2013).
 
Day 1 PM Session: Portfolio Execution. Instructor: Andy Jordan
Organizations only succeed when they have effective strategy execution, and PMOs can, and should, play a vital role in achieving that. End-to-end portfolio management, combined with a business agility focus enable levels of performance that no one ever thought possible. Andy Jordan uses his signature high energy and engaging style to bring participants along the journey to a PMO that is the cornerstone of strategy execution.
 
Day 2 AM Session: The Agile PMO. Instructor: Jesse Fewell
Now that agile methods are here to stay, executives are looking to PMO leaders for answers to fundamental questions: What is the agile movement all about? When does it fit for a given project, and when does it not? Even more puzzling, if agile methods encourage self-organizing teams, then how does that impact the role of a PMO, or even the role of the project manager itself? In this eye-opening session, we will sift out fact from fiction and walk away with actionable tips for evolving your PMO to support agile methods.
 
Day 2 PM Session: Open Space. Instructors: Mark Price Perry, Andy Jordan, and Jesse Fewell
Open Space Meetings are an amazingly powerful way to explore issues, discuss ideas, and achieve breakthrough thinking. Open Space Meetings are particularly useful for fully engaging all those who are truly passionate about and committed to a subject. Arguably, there is no greater shared bond that PMO practitioners have than their collective passion and commitment to the value proposition of a well-conceived, established, and run PMO. This workshop session utilizes the Open Space Meeting approach to tackle the top PMO‐related issues, opportunities, and topics of the workshop attendees.
