The PMO Manifesto, guiding principles for the PMO profession, is launched at Ticketmaster’s HQ in London on Thursday 20th February.
The new Manifesto will invite PMO professionals from around the world to connect and unite; show solidarity and support to their peers whilst driving forward their profession and delivering the highest value to their organizations.
The PMO Manifesto was created to raise the profile of the profession of PMOs around the globe whilst creating guiding principles that lead to increased success of PMOs in organizations today.
Created by PMO Flashmob members led by Ralf Finchett Jnr and Lindsay Scott; the PMO Manifesto is the result of crowdsourced knowledge from some of the leading PMO professionals in the UK today.
About the PMO Manifesto
The PMO Manifesto was created by the attendees of the PMO Flashmob a monthly meetup in the City of London for PMO professionals to network and learn from each other. Based on the idea of the Agile Manifesto, it was agreed that PMOs would benefit from a similar concept.
PMO (Project, Programme and Portfolio Office) has increasingly become a career of choice within project management. Whilst there is a lack of recognition within the wider project management community of the true value of a PMO and the people that work within them – the community continues to raise awareness and champion the benefits of a successful PMO in organizations today.
The PMO Manifesto was written in Autumn 2013 and will be launched with the support of PMO enthusiasts – Ticketmaster, the leading on-line ticket purchase organisation.
