Show Notes:

Hey there, IMPACT Driver!

This week, we’re continuing our conversation about staying relevant and delivering high-IMPACT during our current chaotic times. I have invited back one of my clients, Erick Means, PMO Director for CDW. Erick and his team of 150 project managers are responsible for $260 million in services projects that generate a $2.5 billion portfolio of product revenue for CDW. This time, we’re talking about how a PMO can become and STAY relevant during this global pandemic and beyond into our new normal. This was a hot topic during our weekly Q&A training sessions I ran to help PMO and Project Leaders with managing their projects and shifting gears during this global pandemic. I’ve been sharing a lot of guidance to support you on the podcast starting at episode 40 and I thought you might like to hear from one of your peers as he shares exactly what he’s done to earn his PMO a seat at the table. Erick shares what they’re doing to support their business areas and clients right now and how they are planning for a future that will likely be filled with continued chaos.

Check out this week’s podcast episode to learn:

  • connecting your PMO value to strategy
  • how to respond to rapidly shifting business needs
  • how to make your PMO a key player right now
  • goal setting techniques when changes are constant
  • how to stop the “continuous improvement” treadmill
  • the importance of building your network of advisors
