COURSE OVERVIEW

Business Agility is one of the most trending topics in the world, and the Agile Portfolio, Program and Project Management practices have become more popular because there is an inherent benefit to the organization that adopts them.

PMO as a service provider needs to deliver value through building and designing services that are suited for such organizations, and this can’t be done unless the PMO Managers and staff know exactly what are the challenges and opportunities in agile environments and how to manage them to maximize the value.

The PMO has to play different roles in an uncertain environment to maximize the value it can deliver. For PMOs to support agile PPP, agile services requirements need to be gathered and services and capabilities should be particularly built and designed for an agile environment. This is an opportunity for PMOs to help build the knowledge and capability when faced with uncertainty.

This online workshop  covers how PMOs can start addressing the necessary challenges; particularly uncertainty and change, use different PMO roles to coach, train and advise to support organizational change, build the gaps in services and capabilities and add value to projects, programs and portfolios using agile methods.

COURSE OBJECTIVES
  • Understanding Organizational Agility and how PMOs can support it
  • Learn how the PMO services Agile Portfolio, Program and Project Management
  • Understand what exactly an agile environment is and what are the principles and how to align them with your PMO principles to lead and support
  • Learn how a PMO can add value using a framework approach to building and designing PMO services for an organization using agile methods across projects, programs and portfolios
  • Identify and assess the various roles a PMO can have in an organization using agile methods and how it can use those roles to support and advise efficiently and effectively

Instructor: Peter Taylor

Course Timings: 9AM – 4:30 PM (Arabian Standard Time)

COURSE OVERVIEW

This workshop aims to aid all would-be and current PMO leaders. As a PMO leader myself, five greenfield PMOs developed in the last 15 years) I know that this can be a really rewarding experience, but not an easy one to find the right line to balance the projects and the business demands.

The workshop is about successfully leading a PMO (whatever you understand by those three letters) to deliver better projects, better business to the customers of those projects and greater success to the organisation that you work for. As well as to best serve the contributing project managers from both a professional and a personal perspective.

The workshop will explore some of the research carried out by myself in ‘Leading Successful PMOs’ (Gower) and ‘Delivering Successful PMOs’ (Gower). The books bring together the experience and views of PMO leaders from around the world and the project managers that work within the PMOs, as well as those who are now seeking brilliant leaders for their PMOs.

Together in the workshop we will identify what it is that successful PMO leaders have and do that allows them to be successful and how the rest of us can learn from those proven experiences.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

You will learn more about the sorts of PMO that can be adopted and the styles of operation and management. The workshop aims to aid participants in learning how to grow a PMO to enterprise level or how to re-energize a PMO within an organization.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the meaning and purpose of a successful PMO
  • Understand what makes a PMO successful (and equally what made some PMOs unsuccessful)
  • Appreciate the 5 basic types of PMO
  • Recognize the 4 operational modes of PMO
  • Explore the ‘balanced PMO’ concept
  • Take the ‘PMO pulse’ of their PMO and identify areas for improvement
  • Design a PMO that their organization really needs

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 includes 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.

COURSE OVERVIEW

A methodology guides people about How-To perform activities to achieve some aim. The big challenge is that guidance is only helpful when it matches context and purpose. When mismatched then method is dangerous; there are many contexts and many methods an organization should know how to select between.

Projects may use methods such as PRINCE2 or Last Planner System or Agile. Programs and portfolios also benefit from guidance. When methods are too prescriptive then maybe what is useful is a framework plus values and policy that aid in making procedural choices.

This course will explore what methods and frameworks are. What exists that PMO should know and how a PMO can provide a Service to evaluate their relevance to your organization’s evolving needs.

This course ensures you 

  • Can define and describe what methods and frameworks are
  • Understand what they Must, Should, Could and Won’t do for you (MoSCoW)
  • Know the Ins and Outs of some prevalent methods
  • Advise your organization on which to use when and how to combine them
COURSE OBJECTIVES
  • Apply methods and frameworks to the PMO and the projects programs and portfolio work you support
  • Distinguish the strengths and weaknesses of methods when used for different needs
  • Identify when a wrong method has been mismatched to a project
  • Audit a team’s use of methods
COURSE MODULES
  • Introduction to this Remote Instructor Led Event
  • Method Concepts
  • Common Methods and their Strengths and Weaknesses
  • Frameworks or Methods for Service Delivery (including PMO) and Audit

COURSE OVERVIEW

It has been said that ‘A project is one small step for the project sponsor, one giant leap for the project manager’ – but wouldn’t we all be that much happier if that ‘giant leap’ was supported by a really professional project sponsor?

It will be focused on PMO teams wanting to learn to be more effective with the sponsors they, and their project managers, work with.
