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

PMI Talent Triangle: Business Acumen

Hey, IMPACT Driver! 

What’s in a name?  

Well, a lot.  

What you call yourself and your team can have a big influence on how your stakeholders perceive you and the value you drive in your organization. Do you call yourself a PMO leader, a project leader, a product manager, a…? 

When I was writing my book, The IMPACT Engine: Accelerating Strategy Delivery for PMO Leaders, I had to make a lot of decisions.  

And do you know what one of the biggest ones was? What to name YOU.  

How do I refer to the superhero that helps the organization achieve its goals?  




Miracle Worker? 


Captain of Chaos? 

Juggler of All Things? 


Yeah, it was a struggle. But then it hit me. There’s one name that made so much sense. In this episode, I’m going to share with you the name I chose to describe you in a way that is simple, yet meaningful, and why this name matters for your team and your success.
