Are you a project manager, a Project Management Office (PMO) leader or maybe an executive who is looking to establish a PMO in your business?
Do you want to know how to find the right balance between projects and business demands?
“Leading Successful PMO’s”
Peter Taylor is the author of the number 1 bestselling project management book ‘The Lazy Project Manager’ and ‘The Project from Hell’. He has recently launched his new book ‘Leading Successful PMO’s’.
Leading Successful PMO’s is a book to guide all would-be and current PMO leaders. This is a book for all project based organizations and for all project managers who contribute to and benefit from a PMO (Project Management Office) within their organization.
It is also a book about successfully leading a PMO to deliver better projects, better business to all the customers of those projects and to best serve the contributing project managers from both a professional and a personal perspective.
This is not a book about managing PMO’s as the author does not believe that they are such a stable business unit at this point in time, but rather a book about leading PMO’s which is a much more complex challenge, especially with the association of PMO activity with business strategy.
This book brings together the experience and views of PMO leaders from around the world and the project managers that work within the PMO’s, as well as those who are now seeking leaders for their PMO’s.
In support of his new book, Peter Taylor (together with some great partners) has launched the PMO Leader of the Year Award, to celebrate the very best of PMO leaders around the world.
This award will be presented to the PMO Leader, nominated by their PMO team, who shows the most excellent leadership and understanding of what a PMO can deliver to a business.
A panel of independent judges will review all submissions to consider how each nominee has led their PMO over at least the last 12 months and how they plan to grow the PMO under their stewardship in the coming months.
The Judges will look as the key PMO leadership skills in the areas of:
