Purpose Driven PMO, Empowering People to Deliver Results

There are 3 common questions all PMO Leaders must address to build successful PMOs. 

  1. Why does your PMO exist?
  2. What value does your PMO provide to the organization?
  3. How does your PMO remain relevant as the organization evolves?


Traditional PMO Leadership has struggled to respond to these 3 questions, as a results PMOs continue to fail at alarming rates.  Working with PMO Leaders across the globe as well as studying successful PMOs we now understand that most PMOs work on the WHAT and HOW the PMO functions rather than the WHY the PMO exists.  Through the research, analysis and experience we have since developed the Purpose Driven PMO framework and methodology.  To build long-term PMO success PMO Leaders should start by defining their Purpose and building off that foundation.  In this presentation we’ll explore the Power of Purpose, the Purpose Driven PMO framework and steps you can take to get your kick your PMO into overdrive!
