Navigating PMO Improvement with OPM3®

The 2012 PMI Pulse of the Profession survey identified that only 20% of respondents felt their organizations had high organizational project management (OPM) maturity.  This is startling given the same report indicated that organizations with high OPM maturity reported delivering 72% more projects on time, 55% more projects within budget, and 38% more projects meeting their business goals than their counterparts with low OPM maturity.

The Year in Review - What have we learned...and, how do we learn?

Our profession requires that we learn and learn well. Our Chapter activities provide exceptional learning opportunities - particularly if we have a good learning model. This talk will reflect on educational and Annual Conference presentations with a focus on takeaway messages and transformative ideas. A Learning Model will be presented that demonstrates how to translate ideas into action and into personal change. Talks from speakers over the past year will be covered, including Traci Duez, John Parker Stewart, Steven Fulmer, Mohan Nair, Elizabeth Larsen, Tom Cox, Brad Hermanson, Tim Runcie, and others.
