THIS EXCLUSIVE ONLINE EVENT IS BROKEN DOWN INTO THREE EASY-TO-FOLLOW THEMES TO HELP YOU SUCCEED FASTER:
THEME 1: BECOMING A PMO LEADER
What are the skills and mindset you should have to be ready to take on the challenges that come with the role?
What kind of experience (& positioning) will make you the go-to choice for organizations as their next PMO Leader?
Hear the experts on the PMO Virtual Summit tackle all these questions and more so that you can consciously and deliberately chart out your professional development and get the top PMO role.
Inside, you’ll discover:
- Have you already lost your chance at PMO leadership? The wrong career path can make it VERY tough to get buy-in from upper management. We’ll show you the quick adjustments you can make to win them over.
- Outside The Office: What are the personal skills and traits you should cultivate in order to run a PMO. “Walking naked” may be your number one tool – but don’t worry, you’ll probably get to keep your clothes on.
- The Three Things “Everybody Knows” about PMO leadership: Andy Jordan, President of Roffensian Consulting, explains the assumptions you’ve already made – and then explains why they’re wrong.
- Why A Successful Business Leader Can Learn To Run A PMO In 30 Days… and an experienced project manager can’t always learn what’s needed – even if it takes a year! You’ll discover why, and what the cure is.
- “Wait, Wait, I Had Something For This…” There are ten “little mistakes” that can destroy your organization. Some can be as small as making a list of tasks. Chris Croft has seen all of them – and he’ll explain, too.
- 4 Keys To Compelling Positive Action: Everyone knows the major problems facing people in our industry. Christopher Cook spends time showing us 4 “go-to” solutions, then gives examples for every facet of office life.

THEME 2: SETTLING IN TO YOUR PMO
Do you find yourself caught between figuring out what to do, putting out fires, appeasing sponsors, motivating your team all while determining the direction of your PMO?
Are you searching frantically on Google for the silver bullet that will help you solve all these problems, or going through various blogs, books and podcasts trying to figure it out all on your own?
We’ve got you covered. Our speakers will lay it down so you don’t have to go through the mental and emotional stress. They’ll pour out what they’ve learnt (the hard way!) on what you should do as you’re settling into the role, what’s ok, what’s not, and how you can tackle the most pressing issues during this crucial transition phase.
- Usually, the Stakeholder is priority one. But in some companies, he’s problem number one. Inside, Andy Kaufman explains six REAL strategies his students and clients have used to win over the skeptical, difficult, and stubborn stakeholders.

THEME 3: MASTERING THE PMO
What’s worked for other PMOs may not work for yours.
Because all PMOs are different – each one has unique requirements!
That’s why our speakers will be sharing strategies that are battled-tested across numerous situations. And you’ll be able to customize these strategies specifically for your PMO.
So hear what these experts have to say and put what you learn into action – immediately!
- The PMO Lifecycle: Bill Dow walks you through running a PMO, breaking down executive reports, as well as specific reports like project dependencies, managing day to day operations and more.
- Keeping Your Office Agile: An “agile” PMO is a different beast that requires communication and accountability. While it has many advantages, it can be hard to keep track of the many moving gears.
- Setting Priorities For Success: You’d be absolutely shocked at how many PMO’s don’t setup a priority of their programs and projects – and it shows. You’ll get a small demo of one – along with other templates and reports that will keep your PMO running smoothly.
- The Top Ten Components Of Running A PMO: … and a tricky #11 that “isn’t your problem” but will be laid at your feet anyway.
- Is Your PMO Sustainable? It’s easy and thrilling to get started filling out dozens of forms and templates and tools. But that can increase mental overhead, burn time, and set the wrong expectations – the exact opposite of what you want.
- The P-M-O Approach Works Wonders – Joe Pusz (also known as PMO Joe) breaks down the reasons other departments get the respect and breathing room PMOs usually don’t – and how to adjust your PMO to fix it.
- How to Build and Run a PMO that Delivers IMPACT in Less than 90 Days. Laura Barnard breaks down her proven system for delivering PMO capability without all of the headaches that most PMO leaders face.

I‘M IN! LET’S DO THIS!
AND THAT’S ONLY A SAMPLE OF WHAT’S INSIDE. THIS SUMMIT WAS DESIGNED WITH A PURPOSE.
There are plenty of resources out there for other sections and offices in a corporation, but PMO’s are often the neglected middle child – with everyone fighting turf wars over funding and finishing their projects, nobody works to coordinate projects and keep them on track.
They’re often treated like a layer of bureaucracy that comes between the company and its goals – but a well-managed PMO can be the opposite. These experts know ALL about it, not just the perception, but actually improving the situation.
So I didn’t have to do much arm wringing to get a huge list of accomplished minds to participate in this project. They knew about the challenges of fighting for a PMO, fighting to become the leader and fighting to keep your place there.
I was looking for big ideas, actionable information, and real inspiration designed to make you STOP waiting and START conquering your biggest challenges in meeting strategic goals, achieving operational efficiency, and delivering project value.
And I think we achieved something that’s RARELY been done before in this industry.

Isn’t technology great?
The PMO Leadership role offers a path to a fulfilling career – more exposure to executive leadership, additional responsibilities, a lot of personal and professional development, and better financial remuneration
And setting up a PMO successfully concretely validates all that you can do. For many, this leads directly to executive status: from a PMO Leader to a VP or even a jump to C-level roles.
