According to new research on the 2010 State of the PMO, from PM Solutions (http://www.pmsolutions.com), resource management is the single greatest challenge faced by PMOs (Project Management Offices) today. Whether organizations are dealing with resource contention issues, inadequate project management skills within the PMO, or unrealistic schedules and budgets, they need to identify and implement actionable steps over the next 12 months to be responsive to ever-evolving business demands.
On Wednesday, May 26th at 2 pm ET, PM Solutions is delivering a free 60 minute webinar (with live Q&A), led by Kent Crawford, PMP, PMI Fellow and CEO of PM Solutions, to share insights on the three key strategies PMOs need to harness the power of their resources and create a sustainable, results-driven PMO culture geared for success.
Specifically, webinar attendees will learn how to:
- Centralize resource management to obtain full visibility of work across the organization
- Balance current needs with the development of internal staff
- Optimize resource utilization in correlation to portfolio priorities
- Ensure portfolio planning is aligned with resource skills and capacity
- Leverage the PMO to create a results driven culture
- Devise individual resource management action plan
The live event will take place on May 26th at 2:00 PM ET and is open to all organizations interested in improving their Project Management Offices. Registration is at:
Seating for the live event is limited and filling rapidly. However, all those who register will receive access to the on-demand version of the webinar following the event.
