According to Gartner research, “A project management office (PMO) is usually created to solve a specific problem.”
There are many potential functions of a PMO, and one size does not fit all; so, we will examine which strategies may improve results in your organization. Your company might benefit from a formal Project Management Office or it may be better served by implementing targeted PMO strategies.
We will start by examining key benefits that may be provided by a Project Management Office, and then continue to discuss approaches for implementing PMO strategies.
This interactive session can help you to harness PMO strategies that improve efficiency, consistency, and quality across your projects.

In this presentation, David will introduce Inclusive Leadership using the incredible story of polar explorer Ernest Shackleton.
From Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage:
In August 1914, polar explorer Ernest Shackleton boarded the Endurance and set sail for Antarctica, where he planned to cross the last uncharted continent on foot. In January 1915, after battling its way through a thousand miles of pack ice and only a day's sail short of its destination, the Endurance became locked in an island of ice. Thus began the legendary ordeal of Shackleton and his crew of twenty-seven men. (Amazon.com)
