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

PMI Talent Triangle: Strategic and Business Management

Hi, IMPACT Drivers!

If you’ve been in my community for a while, you’ve heard me talk about the shifting role of the PMO and the requirement to pivot to become a strategic business partner that your organization needs to thrive in the future. You’ve heard me say that the role of the PMO is to drive ever-higher return on investment for the organization’s strategy as quickly as possible and that this is the key to earning your seat at the table.

And…that message is being shared by business leaders globally…

For this week’s episode, Sunil Prashara, CEO of the Project Management Institute (PMI), joined me to share his vision for what is to come for PMOs and project managers with a very clear call to action to PMO leaders to build what he refers to as the Gymnastic PMO to lead our organizations into the future. The opportunity for us is here for the taking and I think you’ll hear some things in this episode that will help you see how to make that pivot and become that IMPACT Driver your business leaders need.
In this episode you’ll learn:
  • how business leaders see the PMO and project management
  • how the role of the PMO is evolving
  • the key functions PMOs will need to perform to thrive
  • the important role of automation in our ability to level up
  • what you can do to earn your seat at the table

I hope you listen to this episode again and again (and share it with your colleagues) whenever you need a little inspiration or reminder of just how important you are to the future of your organization.


Unleash the full power of your PMO to lead your organization into the future (and finally earn your seat at the table).

Whether you’re building a PMO for the first time, trying to get your PMO back on track, or just want to ensure that your PMO is as high-IMPACT as possible, this training will get right to the heart of what really makes a difference in the eyes of your business leaders, where to focus YOUR energy for the best results, and how to accelerate your PMO performance.
