  • The Importance of a Healthy Community Within Your Project Organization
    Projects come in all shapes and sizes, and no two are the same. This holds for project managers as well in that each of us brings a unique set of skills and qualities to the table.
  • When Will We Start Talking to the Right PMO People?
    The vast majority of articles you can find that talk about helping PMOs succeed are not addressing the right audience. If you want your PMO to excel, you have to get people involved who are enablers of that success. And that's not just the PMO head!
  • Conducting a PMO Health Check (Part 3)
    To further assist in the health check process, this series continues with an examination of the rationale as to why each statement within each dimension is deemed to represent a healthy practice. In this installment, we look at the statements in Section 2 of the PMO Health Check Worksheet: Project Planning.
  • Flex for Success: Case Study on Maintenance, Repair and Operations
    MRO (maintenance, repair and operations) services today have greater challenges to deal with to meet the present demand-supply requirements of an increasing number of aircraft flying. This case study identifies opportunities that can be realized by slightly steering strategies and realigning priorities with respect to resource planning and buffer management.
  • How PMOs Can Help the Next Generation of Project Professionals Thrive With Onboarding
    If there is no onboarding process to support new hires, they will have a negative experience at work-and the organization will suffer lost productivity.
  • Lessons Learned: They Really Aren't a Bad Thing!
    You don't have to be a seasoned project manager to have a negative view of the lessons-learned process. But is it really such a waste of time? New PMs especially should carry out lessons learned as often as they can. Here are some ways to do that...
  • Conducting a PMO Health Check (Part 1)

    In the current digital era, organizations must keep with the pace of market and competitor dynamics. During these change initiatives, they need to clearly understand what factors and elements constitute as transformational-and what existing elements need continuous improvement.
  • Create Content, Share Content, Leverage Content
    Social media is a powerful tool to help improve the quality of project management in our organizations, but how many of us take full advantage of the opportunity?
