Here is where I share upcoming events, highlights from those I’ve attended and links to posts with my key takeaways.

Plus you can join the wider conversation with other practitioners in the PMO Break Out Area on Facebook and the weekly #PMChat on Twitter.

Looking for something a little bit different to engage project and programme stakeholders?

I’ll be facilitating a webinar on the 8th November at 12.30pm UK time with PMO Flashmob and Kivue Perform on how to wow your stakeholders with highly visual, engaging information, through innovative tools like the virtual project room vBAR and Kivue Perform, the executive portfolio performance tracking platform.

If you’ve ever struggled to get your exec team engaged in your projects, then this webinar will be for you!

Rupert Taylor, MD at Kivue and Pro4 Solutions, will demonstrate how vBAR and Kivue Perform provide a simple, visual view of your projects that encourages stakeholders to actively get involved.

PMO KPIs, Metrics and Measures

At the next PMO Managers’ Dinner – taking place in Manchester on 20th November – we will be exploring what current PMO practitioners have in place when it comes to demonstrating the value they add or the benefits to the organisation of existing, plus the different types of measurement that PMOs have used and are using – and how to measure.

The discussion will contribute to the next edition of Inside PMO, an annual report from PMO Flashmob which is created from contributions from leading PMO Managers on key PMO themes.

In September 2018 I ran a session as part of the first PMO Impact Summit, a virtual event where thought leaders across the world shared their knowledge and experience across a range of topics relevant to PMO practitioners today.

The session I hosted was part of the “Deliver Continuously High Return on Investment” feature, and explored how PMOs can achieve maximum impact across their organisation by enabling better visibility and access to project-related insight and information.

The session lasted a little over 50 minutes, and the recording is still available via the PMO Impact Summit website for those subscribing to lifetime access.

So for those that missed it, the posts over the next few weeks will cover what was presented and more;

Throughout September 2018 I guest-posted in the Major Projects Knowledge Hub, providing Friday Insights from a PMO perspective.

Those insights are now available to read here in the Posts section under the PMO category;
