MASTER THE EXACT STEPS YOU NEED TO MAKE YOUR PMO A ROARING SUCCESS!
It may come as a surprise to you but your PMO’s success doesn’t just mean that your company will be successful, or that you’ll just get to add it as a professional achievement on your resume.
A successful PMO can also lead to a bonus payday, advanced leadership opportunities and additional financial renumeration for you.
Impress your leadership team, influence your stakeholders, and mobilize your team to your PMO’s success. All so that your PMO can make solid contributions to your company. And you in turn, can achieve financial prosperity and accelerate your career growth!
Take the example of a client I worked with.
He was the Director of PMO at one of the fastest growing companies in North America (as deemed by Deloitte’s Fast 500TM program), and with the success of his PMO, he was elevated to the role of Vice President of Business Operations – in just 3 months’ time!
Want to make this kind of career jump yourself?
Here’s the thing – half of the PMOs that are setup are deemed as “failures” within three (3) years of their creation.
Do you know why?
The #1 reason for this is that PMOs aren’t able to get buy-in from their stakeholders.
What causes that?
PMO Leaders acting in haste and not truly understanding why their PMOs should really exist.
And as a result, the executive leadership and stakeholders come up with their own expectations – which are not in synch with what the PMO Leaders are working on.
You see, with the fear of messing up, not looking good in front of others, and losing this incredible opportunity (aka getting fired), PMO Leaders start putting together a PMO quickly that they think will work.
And that’s a problem because what they think might work, isn’t necessarily the same as what will.
In addition to this, many PMO Leaders get their roles accidentally.
This means that while their leadership believes that they can do the job, these “accidental” PMO Leaders are not quite ready for the role – so a tremendous amount of learning needs to happen on the job, while putting up the front of a pro!
There’s only one thing that can help you as a PMO Leader here – the exact steps of how to properly setup your PMO from scratch!
And that’s what I’m going to cover in this workshop.
“I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.” – Rosa Parks, famous activist from the US civil rights movement
Instead of acting with haste, as a PMO Leader you should instead identify & prioritize all your stakeholders’ pain-points, build your PMO so that it addresses these challenges, and evaluate & report your progress consistently.
With this approach, you know exactly what your PMO’s value is, can easily explain it to your stakeholders, get their buy-in (yes!), and position it for success.
And that’s what we’ll cover in this 3-hour workshop, available to you on two different days and times so you can join when it works for you.
If you’re in the midst of setting up a PMO, starting out as a brand new PMO Leader, or just aspiring to be one, this workshop is for you!
Here’s what one of our past participants had to say about the workshop:
“I participated in the PMO Discovery Workshop as a stepping stone to building the maturity of our Project Management Office. The workshop provided an excellent overview and roadmap from identifying and interviewing stakeholders, current state analysis, requirements gathering through optimization. The personalized approach to participant’s unique situations was very helpful to answer real life business challenges. I have already started to incorporate some of the lessons learned with positive results.”- David F., Head of Project Management Office (PMO) – Group IT, An International Plant/Process Engineering Group
In this 3-hour workshop, you’ll learn:
- The framework to quickly identify all your stakeholders and avoid the costly mistake of missing critical individuals
- Exact questions that you can pick and choose from to make it incredibly easy to uncover the key challenges your stakeholders are facing
- Developing the structure and roadmap of a rock-solid PMO that doubles-down on the only thing that matters: resolving your stakeholders’ pain-points, and
- Determining the right metrics that paint a crystal clear picture of the value your PMO is providing to your organization – so that no one second guesses the impact of your work
And you’ll walk away with:
☑ What you need to do to accelerate your career via PMO Leadership
