Welcome to the PMO Strategies Podcast + Blog, where PMO leaders become IMPACT Drivers!

PMI Talent Triangle: Business Acumen (Strategic and Business Management)

This is a fun episode with Tim Short, Senior Vice President of Global Operations for KeyedIn. Tim and I talk about our long histories in PMOs and project management and the evolution we’ve seen for PMOs and project management. Back in the 90s, we saw projects managed in a much more step-by-step approach. 

Today, organizations must embrace organizational agility and learn to shift quickly as the needs of our customers are shifting. This creates an opportunity to embrace both big “A” Agile and little “a” agile in ways that are helping organizations thrive.

And this is where the PMO comes in…

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • the difference between big “A” and little “a” agile
  • what Agile portfolio management looks like
  • the opportunity for PMOs to earn their seat at the table
  • how to easily start using PPM for your Agile projects
  • how new ways of working support Agile PPM
  • how PMO leaders can influence their executives’ mindsets

Tim Short is joining us as a speaker for this year’s PMO IMPACT Summit, so make sure to say hi to him in the mobile app and community!
