Not all projects are life and death...they just seem that way.

Ric has gone to the literal ends of the Earth and pulled together world-class teams from industries as varied as pearl diving and movie effects to find success on his project.

Enterprise PMOs are the way of the future. They bring a tremendous amount of benefit to the organization through shared best practices, companywide resource utilization, enterprise risk management, and of course the economies of scale that can only be dreamed of at the department level PMO. More and more organizations are recognizing the advantages that can be gained by taking PMOs to the enterprise level, but these gains don't come by chance. To be effective EPMOs need to ensure that they have integrated portfolio management across their entire organization -without that an EPMO is merely an umbrella for a group of disjointed methodologies and functions. This presentation provides some sign posts on the roadmap towards a successful EPMO implementation.

The search for a better way to get work done requires that we stand back and take an objective look at the project management process with fresh eyes. Thomas Kuhn coined the phrase "paradigm shift" in 1962 — which suggests that sometimes it's possible to see the same information in an entirely different way. Ty will talk about how democratizing work and empowering project teams is the paradigm shift that will increase visibility, ramp up efficiency and streamline repetitive processes.
