The workshop includes a real-life case study for student reference and discussion, and concludes with a look to the future of the PMO.

The Remote delivery version of this workshop is split across two days with daily sessions running for 3 hours and following the ‘best practice’ format of each hour of delivery including a balanced mix of presentations, exercises, discussions, and breaks.

Workshop would include a pre-workshop survey to understand the type of PMO (if relevant) attendees were part of, age of PMO, level of experience and challenges.


The remote workshop is directed at anyone sponsoring, leading, or indeed working in a PMO – whether a ‘greenfield’ PMO start up or a mature PMO:

  • PMO Leaders
  • Senior PM practitioners
  • PMO sponsors
  • Those considering investing in a formal project community

No previous PMO experience is required, only a keen interest in learning more about what a PMO can deliver to a business and to the project personnel.
