The APM PMO SIG local meeting for London will be held at CAFOD, the international aid agency. The event begins with an introduction to the PMO at CAFOD. The main presentation of the evening is Peter Taylor, author of “Leading Successful PMOs”
Chaired by the APM PMO SIG, the final local London meeting for 2011 will feature two presentations covering the PMO.
Hosted by CAFOD, the international aid agency, the meeting will start with an overview of the PMO within CAFOD by Anke Bysouth, the PMO Manager.
Delegates will then hear from Peter Taylor, author of The Lazy Project Manager, and more recently Leading Successful PMOs. "How to build the best PMO for your business and keep it relevant to your business".
The presentation 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 to the organisation that you work for, and to best serve the contributing project managers from both a professional and a personal perspective.
The session will explore some of the research carried out by Peter Taylor for his book ‘Leading Successful PMOs’ (Gower). The book brings 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 leaders for their PMOs.
Together 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.
Each local PMO SIG meeting allows time for networking with the opportunity to carry on the discussions at a local pub/bar.
