Presentation Details       Gutches-William  

PMO’s are not new. Working implementations of various types of PMO’s are succeeding for many organizations.

Of the  many  “flavors” of PMO, the typical ones are focused on one or a combination of:

  • Project Management Office (PMO)
  • Program Management Office (PMO)
  • Portfolio Management Office (PMO)

In this presentation, Bill Gutches, will discuss the objectives and evolution of the PMO types from a conceptual standpoint -- their theoretical premises which may or may not be practical to achieve. With these insights, those who want a PMO, will begin to understand what it takes to get started; and those who have one will think about new ways theirs could evolve.

Healthcare (Virtual) Forum - 220216

Webinar
$10.00

"Let's Start Learning from Lessons Learned" by Dave Davis, PMP, PgMP, PBA, ACP, CSM, DASSM, AHPP, PMI-ATP

The PMI Atlanta Healthcare Forum has 9 planned sessions throughout 2022. Proposed topics include IT & IT PMO in Healthcare, Healthcare SME/Domain Forums such as Clinical, Laboratory, Research, Tomorrow's Healthcare & Government practices/law, Thought Leadership in Healthcare, and Innovation in Healthcare Technology. 

Davis-DavePresentation 

Almost every methodology has a process that includes “capturing lessons learned,” but do we really close the loop and actually “apply lessons learned”? Have you ever been trained in how to analyze lessons learned to utilize them in your new project? Do you have “retrospectives” that intend to capture your lessons learned and identify improvement opportunities in both the product and process? Do you have them on paper, but not in practice?

This presentation will take a serious look at the lessons learned process in all methodologies across the continuum and see how we can better improve application of this knowledge to our overall product delivery in the PMO. Dave will discuss:

  • The actual capture of lessons learned from a traditional PM perspective and how that is now evolved to retrospectives in the current agile development world
  • Lessons learned in relationship to knowledge management
  • How we should effectively tag our lessons learned and establish a capability to utilize this information so the next project manager can retrieve it and apply to their project
