Change Management, Meet Agile

The unprecedented challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic have made agility, already an ambition for many organisations, an operational imperative – for teams and enterprises.

How Good Does Your PMO Need To Be?

The efficacy of a PMO can have a direct impact on the pace and outcomes of a programme of work. For example, poorly managed dependencies between workstreams can lead to misaligned plans and expensive resources waiting on others. But how good does a PMO really need to be and how can senior stakeholders be assured that a PMO is benefiting their programme? Chaucer has been conducting research into both the current-state and future-state of PMO and can bring evidenced insight to this question.
