E57 Purpose Driven PMO and PMO Joe Sharing His Story
A rare in-depth discussion with PMO Joe as we had to make a late change with our scheduled guest. We hope to have Cornelius Fichtner join us on a future show.
Joe shared with us the evolution he’s made during the pandemic with choosing how to prioritize his time with family, work and community. Focusing on top priorities and pulling up anchors has allowed Joe and The PMO Squad to focus on pushing forward with several initiatives.
He walked us through the Purpose Driven PMO and the 3 drivers Purpose, Measure, and Optimize to help PMO Leaders build or improve their team, capabilities and value delivery. Soon to be released with the Purpose Driven PMO training and certification program and by year-end, the Purpose Driven PMO book.
Also in the works is the 2020 PMO Leadership Survey which will explore the role and impact of Leadership on PMO success. The survey will be released globally on July 15th. Joe also touched on another book in process which is a recap of stories and lessons from the amazing guests from the past 3 years on the show. Listen to hear these topics and other perspectives while getting to learn a bit more about Joe and his priorities.

ABOUT PROJECT MANAGEMENT OFFICE HOURS SERIES
Project Management Office Hours is intended to provide Project Management professionals a place to drop in and discuss Success Stories, Best Practices, and Lessons Learned. Project Management Consultant Joy Gumz has shared with us, “Operations keep the lights on, strategy provides the light at the end of the tunnel, but project management is the train engine that moves the organization forward.”
Each of us has a unique story to tell, but collectively we share a message that organizations who embrace Project Management Best Practices perform better than those which don’t. Organizations which align Projects to Strategy perform better. Organizations with Engage Executive Sponsors deliver better results. Organizations which measure Project Management performance outperform those which don’t.
During our Project Management Office Hours, we hear directly from industry leaders how to make an impact in our profession. How we, collectively, will Advance Project Management Best Practices, One Listener at a time!
