2015 Plan

For over four years, the NJ PMO Local Community of Interest (LCI) has been providing a forum for knowledge sharing and networking on various aspects of PMOs ( Portfolio / Program / Project) for the members of PMINJ.  

Each year we have held In-person (face to face) meetings and Meet and Greet events at the main PMINJ monthly program event site. Our face-face meetings have included panel discussions and presentations by LCI members and external speakers.

Below are the 2015 dates for the NJ PMO LCI meetings:

  • February 17, 2015
  • June 16, 2015
Meet and Greet event dates

The above meetings are open to all who have registered for the PMINJ Monthly meeting at the main site. The above events take place at the main site of PMINJ Monthly meeting and start at 5:30 PM (for about an hour).

Suggested topics for 2015:

AT the PMO LCI, we cover topics related to PMO and some of them are listed below, if you have any topic you will like to know about or would like to share your experience, send your suggestion to njpmolig(:@:)pminj.org

The world of PMO consists of Portfolio, Program as well as Project Management Offices.  We
structure our discussion on all of the aspects of PMO and provide our members opportunity to discuss and explore the current hot topics and future trends in PMO.  Knowledge sharing and informal discussions have been very useful for participants to ask questions and understand about PMOs.  At these discussions, you get support and encouragement from fellow members; you hear what worked and what did not work; and how to manage the various complexities and challenges in PMOs.

Project Management PMO related:
  • Agile and related new PM topics : PMO role when organizations use Agile
  • Best Practices: Role of PMO in various phases e.g., planning, controlling and closing phases.
