Join Eileen Roden and Lindsay Scott from PMO Learning as they focus on setting up a PMO in this evening session.

With more and more organisations investing in a PMO structure to support projects, programmes and portfolios, this session focuses on the setting up of a PMO on a greenfield or brownfield site.

We take a look at the roadmap for success and focus on the answers to these questions:

  • What kind of PMO is required?
  • What resources are needed to implement a PMO successfully?
  • What skills and capabilities should be in place to build the right PMO?

Insights are shared from the PMO profession including the realities shared from attendees from the PMO Learning Setting Up a PMO course.

Attend the session if you are interested in what elements form a successful PMO set up; the skills needed within the PMO and how the PMO contributes to successful delivery.
