This week The PMO Podcast™ Featured Story presents, "An Introduction for Executives to the Project Management Institute," presented by Mark Perry (about Mark), host of The PMO Podcast™. If you are a project management professional, then you of course know all about the Project Management Institute. But what about all of the other non-project management professionals and executives in your organization? Would you be surprised if I told you that in a survey of 50 non-IT C level executives, only three knew about the Project Management Institute? Well, sometimes we take for granted that what we know is common knowledge. So, today, the purpose of the PMO podcast featured story is to provide a brief, introduction for executives, to the Project Management Institute. And for those of you that already know a great deal about the PMI, you might find a thing or two about the PMI that you didn’t previously know.
The PMO Podcast™ Points Memo suggests, “Don't make assumptions, get the facts!" Many managers and leaders are very good at what they do; otherwise they wouldn’t be where they are. And, most managers and leaders are pretty good people managers as well. But, too often, they assume and make assumptions rather than getting the facts. If you feel that a situation is developing that causes you concern, don’t assume things will go according to plan or turn out okay. Before things go from bad to worse, get the facts.
The PMO Podcast™ Mailbag answers a listener question about resources, tools, and information on project portfolio management.
