Working with The PMO Squad is as Easy as 1-2-3

The consultant stood at the whiteboard, explaining their process to a potential client. “We’ll do this, then that, then something auto-magically happens over here, and this final thing… oh, don’t worry about it. It’s too complicated for you to even understand.” The now, no-longer-a-potential-client’s eyes glaze over as they struggle to stay awake.  How do we know this happens, because it is what we experienced when we ran corporate PMOs, we’ve been there. 

How many sales presentations or process explanations have you nearly fallen asleep during? Probably too many to count. It feels like some people measure their self-worth and value by how complicated they make something sound. 

Well, we’re different at The PMO Squad. We value simple solutions, and as such, subscribe to the Jackson 5’s philosophy of “A-B-C, Easy as 1-2-3”. Let’s see how this works. 

We Start with Your Problem 

“What’s YOUR problem?” No, it’s not the same thing your significant other or workmate asks, with a scowl on their face. We want to know the problem you need to solve. You may not be able to fully articulate it, and that’s okay. We’ll talk through it together. But, a combination of problems / symptoms you are experiencing will start the conversation. 

What are some common problems PMOs face? 

  • Managing Change 
  • Resource Management 
  • Ineffective Communication 
  • Not enough Control or Influence 
  • Not at the Right Level in the Organization 
  • Transitioning through Traditional and Agile life cycles 
    and, [insert your own here]
