Pioneer of the Business Driven PMO
Forget everything you may have heard about PMOs, Mark Price Perry is here to turn yours on its head. In this podcast, Mark makes the case to Elise Stevens that organisations should invest in a Business Driven PMO.
Business Driven PMOs are run like business units, focused on the results desired by the leadership team, and with a keen understanding of stakeholder bias.
Mark’s golden rule is “It’s not your PMO”. As a PMO leader, what you want to do is irrelevant. To have a truly Business Driven PMO, you need to focus on the leadership team and what they want.
If you found your PMO plan on Google, or your PMO review involves a list of projects, Mark will make you rethink your approach.
Points raised in this podcast:
Mark Price Perry pioneered the concept of the Business Driven PMO, challenging the traditional approach to PMO setup and management. Mark is a “boat-rocker” and outspoken critic who believes the traditional approach has led to PMO failures and loss of executive support.
Mark’s approach is driven by the specific needs of the business as determined by the leadership team, not industry standards or the latest PMO models, buzzwords and hype. He is the author of the Business Driven PMO book series and the creator and host of The PMO Podcast.
