The State of the PMO 2016 research report, released last November, shows that the majority of organizations now either have PMOs or are planning to implement one in the coming year, the common functions and practices of PMOs are becoming a standard feature of organizations.

But for those PMOs that have been in place for over five years, expansion of responsibilities and improvements in results are remarkable. A small subset of these PMOs scored as "Best-in-Class" on the capability measure in the study and for those PMOs that are still finding their way. or for new or aspiring PMO leaders, best-in-class PMOs provide a model and roadmap. In an upcoming webinar, we will share some of the keys to PMO success.

Drawing on decades of experience and direct involvement with hundreds of PMOs of all shapes and sizes, our panel of PMO experts—J. Kent Crawford, founder and CEO of PM Solutions and the author of The Strategic Project Office and An Inside Look at High-Performing PMOs, Deborah Bigelow-Crawford, President of PM College, and Roger Bryson, Consulting Services Practice Director— will discuss the recent research and share stories "from the field."  share practical, real-world insights into how to drive PMO results. In this engaging, interactive discussion, attendees will discover:

  • What distinguishes best-in-class PMOs
  • How to avoid common PMO mistakes
  • How benefits realization can be integrated into existing PMOs
  • The importance of investing in employees within the PMO
  • What's next for PMOs, and how to stay ahead of the curve.

Of particular interest to our PM College audience, Debbie Bigelow Crawford will discuss the impact of training on those organizations in the study identified as "high performers."

A live interactive poll wil gather data from the audience on their PMO's benefits realization management practices, one of the areas where Best-in-Class PMOs stand out.

Join us Tuesday, May 23, at 2 pm ET for Take Your PMO to the Top - Experts Reveal the Secrets of Best-in-Class PMOs. Attendees will receive a free PDU plus the full-data version of the research report (not available to the general public). If you can't make it on Tuesday, register anyway to receive a link to the webinar recording.
