For the PMO leader, much of the working day is taken up with operational issues and ensuring that projects, programs and portfolios are operating as they should. From time to time, you’ll have to face difficult conversations to ensure that you can still deliver those projects, programs and portfolios as a team, and stay aligned to where the business needs you to be.
We’ve written a series of articles covering difficult conversation that PMO leaders have at some point in their careers. These covered the following topic areas:
1. How To Ask for More PMO Staff
2. How To Ask for More PMO Funding
3. How To Get Your PMO Involved in Strategic Discussions
4. Your PMO Is More Than An Executive Assistant
5. How To Launch PMO Training for Executives
In this guide, we’ve now consolidated all these articles into a free white paper. We share tips on how to deal with them successfully. There might be other options open to you – there most definitely will be other difficult conversations to have at various points. However, we hope that by being honest about the challenges of successfully running a thriving PMO, we can support you in being the best leader you can be.
