November 2023 Luncheon - One Technique to Improve Project Portfolio Performance—Dramatically

Business Acumen

Join us to learn about "One Technique to Improve Project Portfolio Performance—Dramatically." Presented by Mike Hannan.


Abstract: In most project-centric organizations, the portfolio management role is fulfilled by the “project management office” (PMO), which has become synonymous with costly overhead, cumbersome processes, burdensome rules, and general heavy-handedness. Even "Agile PMOs" too often emphasize standards and controls over helping the organization thrive.


This session will present a single high-powered technique to help transform any PMO into an impact-maximizing function. Mike will describe the typical “vicious cycle” that current PMO environments are typically stuck in, and show how any organization—with a bit of courageous leadership—can “flip” this vicious cycle to virtuous. The presentation offers a more mission-driven set of key performance indicators (KPIs), exposes the myths of consistency and compliance, and teaches a simple yet powerful technique any organization can use to get much closer to its true potential. Finally, Mike will share examples of organizations all over the world that have achieved impressive breakthroughs in both the public and private sectors.
