Reviewers Comments:
***** Great Shows, Great Format...!
The PMO Podcast is well worth listening to. I especially like the ten minute format of the show which provides interesting interviews of insightful topics, pointed commentary often with a twist, and the listener mailbag - usually a tip or a question. I enjoy listening to the short, information rich episodes, from my iPod on the way into work and often a second time from my PC in the office with colleagues. Keep up the shows and keep up the twists and surprises. Anne B, PMO Manager

***** An Excellent Listen...!
The PMO Podcast touches upon both challenges and topics of interest to managers of PMOs. Each show provides something to learn by and something to be amused by. The interviews are very good and the opinion pieces always make a good, and memorable, point. The 10 minute format of the show is ideally suited for listening on the go, between meetings, and during breaks. Very nice show..! Charlie S, PMO Manager

"Many organizations are faced with the reality of balancing their portfolio of projects. Depending on the level of investment of time and money, both projects and their associated stakeholders are continuously competing for face time to meet their own agendas. Interestingly enough, senior project managers have expressed concerns comparing the ROI calculation of new projects versus those later into their lifecycle. In fact, new projects at the beginning of their lifecycle often are projected at the 75%+ ROI in contrast to the more mature projects estimated at a 10%-15% ROI. It’s no wonder that organizations and project managers want to move on from older, mature projects and pursue new ideas. Project portfolio management (PPM) as a discipline and the emergence of PMOs have gained momentum in recent years in project-centric organizations to help prioritize projects and keep them on course."

"In setting up a project office or project management office (PMO), organizations need a pragmatic approach and the support of senior management. By looking internally and using existing best practices, methodologies and tools, project managers can "jumpstart" the process and more importantly create a project office or PMO that fits their organization rather than the other way around. This re-use strategy can also help keep costs down. BUT can it be done quickly without sacrificing the long-term success of the PMO?

In this episode we examine how to set up a project office or PMO in 4 weeks."

"Creating a project office or project management office (PMO) is often a daunting task. Complicating the process is the fact that when you try to talk to people about PMO's, there is very little continuous spectrum of understanding regarding the term PMO. Either the project managers work in an organization which has matured to the point where they have encountered the term project office or PMO or it is a foreign term to them."

Small and medium enterprises (SME) typically are lean, agile organizations. On one hand, functional managers of SMEs often wear multiple hats and are focused on executing the day-to-day operations to ensure their organization’s survival. On the other hand, the executives of SMEs are charged with creating a strategic vision and executing on that vision to ensure the long-term viability of the organization. And oh by the way depending on the size of the organization, the executives may also be working in the trenches as well to maximize the chances to achieve success.

In this episode Wayne Thompson sits down with Blake Chadick, Parksite's enterprise systems manager, to discuss how Parksite improved its operations by transitioning from multiple disparate software systems to a single integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. Parksite is a wholesaler and distributor company headquartered in Illinois that offers specialized products, training, and value-added services to market segments within the building industry. It is one hundred percent employee owned, and has 14 locations and over 350 employees. Parksite’s growth and its continued success demand that the company maintain a clear vision and well-defined goals. It already had in place the right business model, the right people, the right attitude and outstanding products and services. What it was missing was an integrated IT system to enable managers to see what was happening in the business in real time and respond in a timely and effective manner.

Parksite set out on a quest to find a software solution that provided end to end integration; the ability to customize the software to Parksite’s needs and business model (and not the other way around); and a low total cost of ownership.

PM War Stories #35 - Creating a PMO: How to Overcome Risks in Building a PMO that Lasts

#35 - 27 January 2010 - Part 3 This episode examines how to overcome the risks and uncertainties in creating a project management office and more importantly, how to successfully maintain it.

Download PMW_0035_Creating_a_PMO.mp3 [22 MB]

Project managers face and overcome risks and uncertainties frequently in their projects. Creating a project management office (PMO) is no different. It requires securing a large commitment on the part of the organization, obtaining buy-in at all levels, actively managing stakeholders and sponsors, and carefully gauging, and in some case disregarding, risks and uncertainties. Success is not achieved merely with the creation of the PMO itself. In fact, 25% of PMOs typically fail in the third year of their existence. To build a PMO that will last, project managers need the proper infrastructure, processes, people and tools. Implementing a project portfolio management (PPM) strategy is an important early step as it helps tie those pieces together in building a PMO. Additionally, it helps drive the sustainability and success of the PMO by providing the necessary system of checks and balances that ensure projects are on track and in alignment with the organization’s goals.

"Today I talk with Neil Mendelson, Vice President of Products at Mindjet, about their new version of MindManager, MindManager 9.
If you haven’t used mindmapping on your projects, you need to add this tool to your project management toolbelt. Mindmapping is a powerful tool for use with projects! A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid to organizing information, solving problems, making decisions, and writing."

#3 - 22 August 2008 This episode examines how categorising and prioritising your workload visually and assigning time in which to finish each specific task [Timeboxing] - helps the Project Manager to stay focused and completing the work to a reasonable level of satisfaction in being able to achieve what is possible.

"In this podcast, we’ll take a look at how to talk about how many projects you are attempting to finish. I meet people all the time, and I'm always amazed when I meet developers, project managers, testers, writers, and other project staff who look as if they haven't slept in days. One project manager said, “I'm managing three projects. I'm not making any progress on any of them. But my boss thinks I should be able to manage at least three projects. How many should I be able to manage?” I wish I had the right answer. The best answer is “It depends.”"

#2 - 15 July 2008 This episode examines how "Emergency Projects" originate, how they should be tackled, and how "Timeboxing" your work load can help

"A project manager at a client took me aside recently. "Johanna, how many emergency projects should I have?" I was a bit surprised and asked what he meant. "Well, my boss thinks I can manage two normal projects and two or three emergency projects. I'm swamped."

I would think so. If I'm managing one project--actively managing, not caretaking - I can't even take on one emergency project, never mind two or three. Asking a project manager to actively manage risks, remove obstacles, and help the team accomplish the work on several projects - a couple of which are the most important thing the company can do - is overloading the project manager."
