Bobby started his professional life on the HSBC Graduate Scheme. Whilst on this scheme he was fortunate enough to come 4th in the TARGETJobs Rising Star of the Year Award. At HSBC he realised his true passion lay in PMO. Since then he has set up multiple PMO’s across a range of industries, including Financial Services and Utilities. When setting up PMO’s his approach has been to adopt a Business Transformation Approach – deploying a clear vision and communications plan alongside Kanban style development of artefacts and processes and focused training for the PMO team. This approach empowers the PMO team to own the change and enables the development of processes and capabilities to remain iterative and aligned to the changing needs of the organisation.
Presentation: Programme PMO Leads – the Programme Manager’s COO
The role of the Programme PMO Lead is evolving. Historically, these individuals have often been seen as competent followers of process; perfectly suited to taking direction and operating within tightly defined. Whilst those parameters are essential to a well-managed Programme, they are not the most value-adding things for the Programme PMO Lead to focus on.
At Dyson we are pioneering a concept where the Programme PMO Lead takes more ownership for the operational control of a Programme – effectively becoming the Chief Operating Officer; with the delegated authority to not just report on problems, but fix them too.
During this presentation, Bobby will take delegates through how this approach not only speeds up problem resolution but increases engagement with PMO Customers.
