PMO Leadership | Value Creation and Continuous Improvement

Online Forum - view the presentations then join the live Q&A session


Research suggests that there is a direct correlation between the capability of the PMO and the value it has contributed to the organization over the past 12 months. 

In the past the PMO may have been a passenger in the facilitation of value and capability. But the modern-day PMO is in the driver’s seat.  Increasingly, the PMOs of today have an opportunity to play a pivotal role in ensuring that organisations make the best use of capital investment - through the PMO’s dedication to delivering business value and developing capabilities to improve the way we deliver value in the future.

Is it value for money? Is it achieving your strategic objectives? Is it the benefits delivered? Is it about better performance and happy stakeholders? Or, is it all of these combined?

Hear from the following presenters:

  • Mark Lowy, Principal Consultant at Guava Consulting Group talking about Benefits Realisation

  • Jun Wong, EPMO Manager at Transurban, presenting on Continuously improving lessons learned: Observations from the Field

  • Lindsay Scott from House of PMO presenting on Continuous Personal Improvement in Your PMO Career

  • Gus Dominguez, PMO Manager at the Bureau of Meteorology presenting on Benefits Management

  • Marcus Glowasz, Director at Fortean presenting on Re-Focussing the PMO - How to transition to a Future-Proofed PMO Capability
