About The Event

Hey, PMO Leaders! Are you looking to Expand Your Reputation, Reach and Results?

When you’ve proven to your organization that project management delivers value, helping everyone to accomplish more and stress less, invariably more people are interested in developing their project management skills too! This shift is a testament to your good work but also can present a variety of problems and opportunities.    If you’re running a PMO, do you have the time to teach everyone how to develop their skills from zero to proficient when they are not necessarily leading the most critical and visible projects? Likely you don’t have time for that, but the payoff can be enormous for both the organization and your reputation as the go-to internal project guru. 

After this lively and interactive workshop, you will:

* Be prepared for how to respond to the delightful request that “everyone” needs more project management training

* Be able to clearly discuss the benefits and opportunities of developing project management skills in non-project managers

* Have a simple language and framework ready that is aligned to PMI’s global gold standard process, but in more non-project-management-geek-friendly terms

* Learn from the facilitator, each other and reflect on your organization to create a strategy for supporting non-project managers

* Feel confident that you have trusted resources available when you are ready to expand your reach and results


In this podcast episode, you can learn more about what we have planned.  Listen HERE in and let us know what you think!

Laura and Dawn discuss:

* The future of working more projectized and what this means for you  

* Situations we’ve faced and advised related to expanding reputation, reach and results

* What “practical project management for everyone” looks and feels like  

* Reflection/self-assessment questions and action taking ideas
