June 2021 | The Failed PMO by Katharina Radlinger-Kohler

Webinar Description

Is a PMO still needed in our agile / VUCA world? What is the benefit from PMOs for project-oriented organisations? Is there a benefit or is a PMO just something that a project-oriented organisation has to have?

In this webinar you will hear the example of a PMO which has failed. After several years of hard work to implement a PMO from scratch, the decision was taken to reorganise the process of execution of projects in another organisational unit, which provides more benefit to the organisation.

Katharina, the former head of the PMO, will share her insights and learnings with you. You will here:

  • How the PMO was positioned
  • What were the pitfalls and the challenges of the PMO
  • How and why the PMO was replaced
  • How this experience will help the organisation to improve
