How to Setup (or Elevate) Your PMO

Transform your PMO into an IMPACT Engine that generates high-IMPACT outcomes for every project.

Whether you’re starting 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.


My step-by-step system has been developed leveraging more than 24 years of real-world experience as a PMO leader myself, and then as a consultant, trainer, and coach. The work I do with my students has helped them earn a seat at the table to lead their organizations through times of crisis (i.e. COVID) and well into a new normal where the PMO and the organizations they serve are THRIVING!


  • You are building PMO – Whether it’s your first PMO or fifth PMO, you know you have limited time to start showing value and need to make sure you’re following a proven system designed to get you results quickly and earn credibility and stakeholder buy-in fast.
  • You need to up-level your PMO – Your PMO already exists and it’s time to deliver more value for the organization and you know you have limited time to keep that stakeholder buy-in and support.
  • You want a credible and reliable framework – You are smart enough to know you can’t Google your way to a successful PMO and that the information you’ve found so far has been conflicting at best and dangerous at worst. You want to follow a proven system that has worked for PMO leaders around the world.
  • You have a PMO of one person or a small team – You don’t have an endless budget or resources nor a lot of time to waste making mistakes or learning the hard way. You want to be sure that wherever you focus your precious energy, it will yield results quickly.
  • You need to increase stakeholder buy-in – You know that your stakeholders can make or break your PMO and you want to know exactly how to avoid resistance to your PMO and be sure you have a high level of engagement for the services you deliver. 

In this one-hour training, I will walk you through my proven six-step process to transforming your PMO into an IMPACT Engine that has been elevating careers and getting outstanding results for PMO leaders around the world.

Please allow one hour for this training.

Speaking Bio

Hi, I’m Laura!

I’m passionate about helping individuals and organizations effectively leverage their resources to deliver superior and sustainable IMPACT and bring their PMOs to the strategy table.

Those that know me, know that I’m incredibly passionate about helping individuals and organizations effectively leverage their resources and develop their own capabilities to deliver superior and sustainable results consistently, driving ever higher return on investment. I really don’t stop until we have, together, transformed you, your team and your organization into an IMPACT Engine™.

For more than two decades, I’ve been helping business leaders in a broad range of organizations, from nonprofits to global financial institutions, get the results they crave. It’s all about combining my years of experience applying battle-testing techniques in the PMO and Change Management space with my passion for helping people get things done.

That’s what it’s all about…

Many times we talk about the PMO or project management as the outcome and it’s not. The business changes we are creating are the real IMPACT we make when we build a PMO or put in place project management practices. Remembering that is the key to our success!

In 2021, I was named the Global PMO influencer of the Year, the only award of its kind in the world, by the PMO Global Alliance. This award tells me that we’re doing the right things and our efforts to shake up this industry and the way the world sees and values the PMO is working!

I welcome you to check out our popular PMO Strategies Podcast to learn the game-changing techniques that are transforming the industry.

I’m looking forward to helping you make a bigger IMPACT, my friend!

Here’s what recent training attendees had to say:

This is by far one of the best webinars I’ve ever attended!

Thank you, Laura. I have been following your PMO Strategies content for a while now and today was like a mini MBA in setting up, sustaining & creating / delivering value with a PMO. Absolutely loved it.

Thank you for such valuable free training! You’ve changed the way I think about the PMO and now I know exactly what I need to do to make a big impact.
