• PM expertise
• Resource management experience
In this Part 2, we’ll examine the final three capabilities that I feel the PMO Director must bring with them into the position in order to have the best chance of making the project management office and ongoing success within the organization.
Hmm…leadership experience. Anyone involved in project management really needs to bring this to the table….although I realize that new project managers won’t yet have this experience. But we’re not talking about new project managers here – we’re talking about the person designated to lead the office of project management full of experienced and developing project managers tasked with leading some of the most important initiatives their organization will take on each year. It’s not for the inexperienced or faint of heart. The PMO Director must be a take-charge individual, ready to step in and help make key project decisions that can make or break the online project management software schedule, knock down project roadblocks, and help engage customers when they become aware that project managers or key projects are in trouble or experiencing issues.
