Mustafa Hafizoglu
The Rise and The Collapse of My PPMO

PPMO (Project Portfolio Management Office) in SDT was established in 2013 and closed in 2017. The value it created was incredible such that it was presented on May 11, 2016 at PMI EMEA Global Congress, Barcelona. Moreover the benefits it created were just published in a recent podcast named Lessons Learned—The Value of Knowledge Transfer in PMI\'s Projectified Podcats ( My presentation will be all about the history of my PMO, from its success to its failure. The reasons, the culture, the results, and the lessons learned will be shared with the attendees. Namely, a unique sharing of experience.

Business Collaboration: Driving a new way of working through the PMO

Peter Taylor 
Business Collaboration: Driving a new way of working through the PMO

A project is a temporary endeavour where people come together to work towards a common goal and purpose; it is therefore a temporary endeavour that must rely on a social system of communication and collaboration in order to succeed

Social project management is a non-traditional way of organising projects and managing project performance and progress aimed at delivering, at the enterprise level, a common goal for the business but harnessing the performance advantages of a collaborative community

How can the PMO both lead and encourage a move away from traditional centralised control of projects, overcome the challenges in such a paradigm shift, and instead promote the value of open team collaboration for greater business advantage?

Strategies for Project Sponsorship 

by Peter Taylor

Strategies for Project Sponsorship
by Peter Taylor

It has been said that 'A project is one small step for the project sponsor, one giant leap for the project manager' - but wouldn't we all be that much happier if that 'giant leap' was supported by a really professional project sponsor?

Based on the research from the new book ‘Strategies for Project Sponsorship’ (Management Concepts Press) one of the books authors, Peter Taylor, will lead this workshop to explore the current challenges of project sponsorship maturity and will deliver some techniques for creating an effective partnership with today’s project sponsors, as well as looking to the future on what could be.

The course will follow the theme of understanding and deploying certain strategies for delivering effective sponsorship within your organisation.

The workshop can be focused on project managers wanting to learn to be more effective with the sponsors they work with, or for project sponsors wanting to improve their skills. Who should attend?
• Project Managers 
• Project Sponsors 
• PMO staff

Regardless of your experience with project sponsorship in the past this workshop will allow you tounderstand more from all perspectives.

You will learn more about understanding the project sponsors you work with, or indeed what type of sponsor you are, and how to develop an effective working partnership between project manager and project sponsor.

• Better understand what role a sponsor should play and what good sponsorship looks like 
• Learn how to understand the project sponsor that you have and how to work effectively with them
• Be aware of the role that you should play in developing executive sponsorship inside your organisation 
• Recognise at a personal level what is needed to make the transition to project sponsor
