The Transformational PMO- Gearing Up Your PMO to Deliver Organizational Transformation
Based on PMI’s Publication “How Successful Organizations Implement Change”

This session focuses on the engine that drives Organizational Transformation – The PMO. While every organizations seems to be looking to transform, very few are able to actually deliver that transformation. The challenge can be summarized in three questions: Are We Doing the Right Projects? Are the Projects Delivering the Right Value? And Are We Managing the Projects the Right Way? Without a PMO, answering these questions becomes very difficult. A properly setup and equipped PMO will improve alignment, benefits delivery, organizational agility, and expedite the transformation. Let’s explore how.

During this interactive session we will explore:
• Strategy, Transformation, and the PMO 
• Translating Strategic Goals into Actionable Initiatives (Including Exercise)
• What is Value?
• Different Types of PMO
• PMOs that do not transform organizations
• PMOs that drive transformation
• Organizing your PMO to deliver transformation
• Q&A
