Speaker: Josh Seymour


“Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.”

– King Whitney Jr.

Much has been written about best practices for defining and institutionalizing a Project Management Office (PMO). While best practices can act as a jumping off point, they are more effective as guidelines as they help companies steer their way. Just as there are no two identical projects, there are no two identical organizations. Best practices are most effective when tailored to the varying needs, strategies and/or culture of the company. This session does not intend to provide a “playbook” for setting up a PMO, but rather to present a few “pointers” to consider as you establish and enhance your PMO.

Learning Objectives and Outcomes:

  1. Understand the current-state of PMO’s
  2. Discover the different types and functions a PMO can serve
  3. Recognize factors that impact adoption of org. and process changes
  4. Understand how to demonstrate the value added by the PMO
