Elevating the PMO: How to Drive Project Excellence and Develop Project-Focused Talent Across Your Organization
Expanding Project Leadership Outside the PMO and into the Organization
Most departments across your organization will acknowledge that much of their overall work is project-based. And in many cases, they may not have the benefit of dedicated project management resources to lead and contribute to their critical initiatives. Project management offices (PMOs) have an ability – and responsibility – to foster an environment in which all project-based workers, regardless of title or formal alignment to the PMO, have an opportunity to develop skills and competencies that will enhance their project success in the short-term and develop sustainable project leadership for the future.
Elevating the PMO: How to Drive Project Excellence and Develop Project-Focused Talent Across Your Organization discusses:
- The impact of developing everyone involved in project-based work
- Learning the importance of integrating technical project skills and relational competencies
- Understanding how these measures can elevate the credibility and influence of the PMO
PMOs have a clear opportunity to raise their level of influence and credibility within their organizations and further drive overall goal achievement by championing efforts to ensure that project-based learning opportunities extend to everyone involved in project-based work. Extending these development opportunities outside of the PMO aids in standardizing project language and process, works to build an organizational culture of efficient and effective execution and fosters individual growth and engagement.
