In 2000 research on The Value of Project Management, only 47% of companies had a project office. By 2006, the study of Project Management: The State of the Industry showed that 77% of companies had PMOs. In 2010, The State of the PMO research shows that 84% of companies have PMOs, with another 10% planning to implement one within a year. The survey also indicated that the PMO has become a valued strategic partner to senior executives, expanding their influence up to top management.
Today, PMO’s need to support high value strategic initiatives, helping organisations to transform and to maximize benefits realisation. So what are the characteristics of those PMO’s? How can they help organisations achieve their strategic goals and objectives? What are the risks and challenges associated with implementing those PMO’s?
Join in on this terrific workshop to gain valuable insights on proven approaches to well organised and implemented PMO’s, and how they can add real value to your organisation. The workshop includes thought-leadership and scene setting to provide strong context plus group case study exercises, coaching sessions and one-on-one dialogue.
Project Stakeholder Management is a NEW KNOWLEDGE AREA found in the latest version of PMI Guide to Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide 5th Edition). It presents clearly the processes in managing stakeholders.
But good processes require good judgment and skillful execution. In the real world project managers are faced with multiple challenges from stakeholders, and it seems like there is this huge chasm that divides one person from the next. Most of the divide is not just between people but often there is a great chasm with the Mental Models within a person’s mind.
If you have these challenges in your projects where there are gaps between the various stakeholders that can jeopardize your project, come to this workshop and explore various approaches to understanding more about the chasm that creates challenges within and between persons. Practice skills in crossing the human chasm and learn to manage your challenging stakeholders better.
