Sustainability-Focused Project Leader: Why We Are Uniquely Placed To Deliver the Sustainability Transformation

Dec 21, 2022 10:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Bringing a sustainable future into our grasp relies upon the successful execution of thousands of well-conceived projects. Project management and project leaders are critical in achieving more sustainable practices. Executives must provide them with more flexibility in managing projects, moving past the traditional “iron triangle” of project management — managing time, budget, and quality. Sustainability cannot be achieved simply through rigid planning and traditional project targets. Project managers must be unleashed to reach these goals innovatively. CEOs should empower a new kind of sustainability-focused project manager to lead organizational transformation. The Project Management Office (PMO) can play an important role when analyzing new project ideas. It should develop new guidelines for sponsors and managers to increase the focus of their projects on such sustainable outcomes and benefits.

With the significant increase in automation of operations and the increase in change initiatives and project work, a new role is emerging in the executive committee.

Is Your PMO Disrupted...or Disruptor?

by Andy Jordan

Not everyone believes that PMOs have an important role to play. Some stakeholders still view them as reporting and oversight functions that have little relevance in today’s world. PMOs need to change that perception—and digital disruption is a good way to start.

The PMO as Service Provider

by Andy Jordan

There’s been a lot of focus on empowering project delivery teams to work how they see fit, but what are the implications of that for PMOs in terms of their day-to-day work? There’s no single answer, but a services menu model can help.

Reimagining Benefits Realization

by Andy Jordan

Is benefits realization a significant challenge in your organization? Perhaps it’s time to question your approach, to acknowledge that the process might be fundamentally flawed and results in a false sense of understanding what’s happening.

Does Your PMO Suffer From ‘TL; DR’ Syndrome?

by Andy Jordan

To be relevant and valuable, PMOs need to speak the language of their stakeholders—and that’s often not happening. When it comes to your PMO communications, it's likely that you're providing too much information—or not enough.

What Defines PMO Success?

by Andy Jordan

If a PMO is going to deliver the best possible value to the organization—both through its own actions and by enabling success in project delivery environments—having the right metrics applied in the right way, and leveraging the right responses, is critical.

Don’t Replace the Triple Constraint!

by Andy Jordan

Organizations are recognizing that they need to go beyond the traditional metrics of scope, schedule and budget to determine project success—but those metrics still matter as indicators of how effective and efficient a company’s planning approach is.

Measuring What Matters

by PMI

Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s leading authority on project management, and professional services firm PwC have teamed up to address how success being measured by project-based organizations impacts PMOs

The Biggest Mistake PMO Leaders Make

by Andy Jordan

If PMOs continue to focus on drawing attention to themselves to demonstrate value by collecting, consolidating and regurgitating various project metrics, they will never make a difference. PMO leaders are too focused on what they are and what they need, not what they do for others—and certainly not what they enable to happen.

Attract Better Candidates by Promoting Upskilling Programs

by Joe Wynne

How can you get more (and better) project manager candidates? Beef up your recruiting promotions. If your organization wants to generate more high-quality hires, then follow these tactics to identify and build on your company's strengths—and promote these in your recruitment communications.

Where Do We Go From Here With PMOs?

by Mark Mullaly, Ph.D., PMP

For every shining exemplar of a PMO, there are dozens—if not hundreds—of failed examples fallen by the wayside. This is not a good look. PMOs often start in crisis as a desperate response to a situation gone sideways, and sincere questions about their value emerge once the crisis resolves (or endures).

Topic Teasers Vol. 147: Getting the PMO To Listen!

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: With all of the recent changes in project management, our PMO (Project Management Office) needs to update itself. I think those ideas for new ways of working must come from the project managers, but I can’t seem to get the PMO to listen to me. Is there a clever way to present my ideas, based on my experience delivering products and services for this company, so that the PMO might actually update its practices?

What CEOs Expect From Your PMO

by Michael Wood

What constitutes a mature PMO in your organization? What should they deliver? And what should PMO leadership focus on when meeting with the C suite? Here we learn important PMO maturity lessons through the CEO lens.

Integrated and Aligned PMOs—The Difference Maker?

by Andy Jordan

If leadership isn’t asking PMOs to concentrate on enabling value, then there will be less understanding of how—or if—value is being achieved because no one is looking for it. To make a difference to their organization, PMOs need to focus on things that matter.

The Difficult Relationship Between PMOs and Spreadsheets

by Andy Jordan

When spreadsheets are used in your PMO, they are dangerous in the extreme because they give stakeholders a false sense of security. They result in a lack of questioning information until it’s too late—and ultimately, they contribute to the failure of projects, programs and potentially entire portfolios.

by Bruce Harpham

Most PMOs are not yet performing at an elite level of performance. As an individual PM, you have a few choices to make at this stage. The option you choose depends on your seniority, risk appetite and ambition. Explore these three options to see which one best suits your situation.
