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

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

Hey there, IMPACT Driver!

In this week’s episode, I had a fantastic conversation with Rachel Hentges, the Director of Marketing for KeyedIn about this very PMO-specific survey they conducted to learn what trends have been developing in PMOs, where the pain points are now, and what PMO leaders must know and DO differently to thrive in the coming year and beyond.

You are going to want to dive right into this episode, my friend. So, grab your walking shoes, your keys for that commute, or a cup of something yummy to join you as you explore all the goodness in this episode, including:

  1. The big shifts starting to take place
  2. Biggest challenges PMO leaders are facing
  3. The push to redefine success metrics
  4. The story behind project failures and what they tell us
  5. The insights behind project portfolio failures and what they indicate

And, of course, you know I’m all about taking action to apply what you’ve just learned! So, naturally, we wrap up this episode with important takeaways and action steps you can take today to help your PMO thrive and secure your seat at the table.
