The PMO is at the core of successful PPM for many organisations and deserves recognition.  We are championing the cause of the PMO through our investment in:

  • Lobbying for and sponsoring the newest APM Annual Award category “PMO of the Year”
  • Supporting the annual APM PMO SIG conference
  • Partners and hosts of the PMO Global Alliance Awards
  • Creating and training the only APM Accredited PMO Practitioner course
  • Becoming the exclusive UK Partner of the PMO Global Alliance and PMO Value Ring
  • Developing our ground breaking PMO Maturity Assessment Toolkit
  • Developing exclusive PMO configuration functionality for Microsoft Project Online
  • Work in conjunction with the APM PMO SIG to publish the largest UK non-salary annual survey on project management; The State of Project Management.

FuturePMO is an important part of our commitment to the PMO. Wellingtone is a commercial organisation but we do not run FuturePMO to make a profit. Ticket revenue does help cover costs but Wellingtone makes a significant contributions to ensure our policy commitments of:

  • Keeping the ticket price low
  • Making the “wow” factor high
