About the Topic

PMO’s aspire to “next-generation” status, yet many struggle to make the transition from a bureaucratic entity to a strategic driver of an entire change portfolio.

Join “The Magical Mystery Tour” based on a real life case study at a Financial Services PMO to understand how a PMO can go about creating a framework and operating model that promotes integration, transparency and that enables and supports the business while still facing these typical challenges:

  • low levels of project management maturity
  • executives that don’t understand their sponsorship role
  • inexperienced individuals appointed to run complex programmes and projects
  • lack of consistency across programmes and projects – and resistance to  transparency when it’s introduced
  • organisational resistance to change where a PMO is typically seen as an overhead
