How to build and sustain the organizational project management system?

In this post, I am sharing another video from the Applied Project Management by SUKAD YouTube channel. This video is also from the first project management forum organized in Dubai; the Dubai International Project Management Forum (DIPMF).

Organizational Project Management

The video is about OPM, Organizational Project Management. It is a 3-hour workshop that presents The SUKAD Way™ for Managing Projects approach for building and sustaining the OPM System. We follow a model called The Seven Elements of Project Management Maturity™ that we developed in SUKAD in 2010.

Click on the picture to access the video and keep in mind, it is 3-hour but you can claim 3 PDU for it if you a PMI certificate holder.

Do organizations need a PMO or a project management department?

In this post, I am sharing a video from the Applied Project Management by SUKAD YouTube channel. This video is from the first project management forum organized in Dubai; the Dubai International Project Management Forum (DIPMF).

The video is about PMO, Project Management Office and makes the case to elevate the status of PMO and Project Management in organizations from an “office” to a formal “department”. In other words, is there a need to transform from PMO to project management department?

The video is via this link. It is 27 minutes but because it was a live event; the sound quality is not best.

First, we will start with some definitions to ensure alignments. Continue reading
