PMI Talent Triangle: Power Skills (Leadership)

There’s an art to building a project management competency program inside your company. If you do it too soon, you could face resistance and may not have the right top down and bottom-up support. What you will hear in this podcast episode is not just how to do it well and what to do, but the art of perfecting the timing. It is probably not the first service you want to build for your PMO because you will likely need to build some trust and credibility with your leaders and other stakeholders before you take on the task of bringing PM capabilities to the broader organization. But how do you know when it’s the right time?

In this episode, you’ll hear Allison Primack’s journey as a PMO leader faced with building a PMO from the ground up and the nuances that she discovered when determining the best time and way to setup a project management competency program.
