The majority of projects have either PMO’s or people who fulfill this function coupled with the governance that reports up the chain to the CxO level. In theory, this should enable any issues arising to be evident early so clear direction and support can be provided to resolve the issue. After all the success of the project is in the interest of the board as well as the project team. So why is there often friction between the two and many projects struggle to obtain the support or even interest of the board?

This webinar presented on Tuesday 6 June 2023, took a look at the roles and responsibilities of the CxO and the PMO and the issues that arise that prevent the two working effectively together. Solutions such as a Chief Project Officer and Enterprise PMO were then explored.

Webinar resources

Paul has very kindly allowed his presented material to be made available for viewing. The slides on Slideshare and the webinar recording on YouTube are now available in our APM resources area and also embedded below for reference.

The questions submitted from attendees during the webinar are being reviewed and answered.



Paul Evans has spent 30 years in the project management profession working across a range of industries covering aerospace, defence, energy, nuclear and transport. He has been a troubleshooter for a number of high strategic value projects, helping them to recover and get back on track and helped a range of clients establish PMO’s. A key aspect to achieve this is ensuring that the governance system is effective and to ensure the ability of the PMO to assess data and use it for effective decision making.
