Marketing Pitch

Project management offices are not new. Their concept began not from senior management, but from grass roots. Project managers frustrated with ever-changing requirements and resources began banding together to help each other solve common problems. The concept has now sprung into a formalized structure designed to improve project efficiency, shorten project execution, and easy resource management. The result: projects get done faster and with higher quality to the delight of senior management.

Based on his two books, A Manager’s Guide to Project Management, and 7 Keys to High-Performance Organizations, Mr. Bender provides a structured approach to creating and successfully developing s powerful PMO that helps your organization deliver projects faster and with higher quality.

In this presentation, you’ll discover how to design and build a powerful PMO. You’ll learn how to develop senior management buy-in and support, and the key elements you’ll need to make your PMO a success!
