As part of our work to prepare for the PMO and Value conference, PMO SIG asked Reinhard Wagner, President of IPMA to let us have his views on PMO, value, and even to give us some PMO Wisdom advice!
As part of bringing real PMOs to our members, our PMO Wisdom Series provides us with an opportunity to interview PMO professionals that bring new and interesting points of view regarding the industry. This is a recorded interview with Colin Ellis, a co-owner of Project NPS in Australia.
PMO wisdom interview with Laura Barnard, the CEO of PMO Strategies in the United States.
In this issue of our newsletter you can find out what PMO SIG have been up to as well as some of the exciting events we have coming up. All wrapped up with a dose of the hot topics from around the industry and our first ever PMO Wisdom interview!
All in all, the Benefits Summit was full, with insightful speakers, and lots of interaction. A good day had by all. I was one of the people tasked with running a workshop – PMO and its Role in Benefits Management. My workshop was oversubscribed (which I will take as a positive), and was geared to get the delegates talking. We discussed the merits of understanding what value means to different organisations and the types of benefits that exist, followed by why benefits management is so hard to embed, the blockers, and political aspects of it.
PMO wisdom interview with Mike Kane Monday 20th June 2016 The recording is available in our APM resources area and is also below for reference followed by the transcript.
The Benefits Summit 2016 took place on a dreadful weather day, in London, on the 23rd June. Once everyone managed to battle through the rain beaten tube lines, broken umbrellas, and traffic, Bruce Phillips gave the delegates a rousing introduction reiterating the theme for the day ‘Value over Delivery’, encouraging them to network and build relationships with their peers, take the opportunity to learn more about our trade, and use the day to fill in any gaps in their benefits management armoury.
