Babson's Project Management Office has taken root, evolved, and matured in an environment where very little project management had traditionally existed. This highly visual, entertaining, and humorous presentation in the style of Seth Godin on PMO creation at Babson will include interactive discussion about cultural and environmental factors for PMO formation and the mission, structure, staffing, and portfolio and project processes that are sustainable over time.

Learn both the strategic and tactical aspects of creating a PMO * Gain insight into the cultural and functional obstacles encountered when moving from a functional- to project-based environment in IT * Identify best practices and environmental factors that help PMO implementations succeed
