Since today kicks off the 2010 PMO of the Year Award application period (see the contest information, and download application materials here), and since I've been writing a series about roles in the PMO, it seems a good time to review the previous winners of the award, and see what they have in common with… Read More »

Posted by Jeannette Cabanis-Brewin in Portfolio Management, Project Management Office (PMO), Resource Optimization | 0 Comments

In 2003, when I began researching PMO roles for our books, Optimizing Human Capital and Project Management Roles and Responsibilities, I proposed adding a role called "Manager of Project Managers" to our list, and was met with some skepticism, and rightly so.

On Thursday, at the PMI conference in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, the conference organizers featured a track of simultaneously translated presentations in English (adding additional complexity to their conference planning ... and pulling it off beautifully, too).

As I said in my previous post, this is one of those business news articles that is all about portfolio management, without ever mentioning it.I suspect that is because a lot… Read More »
