About this Session

Those of us who know the initials PMO span roles and seniority from senior operational leadership with exec duties to project technical team members and many between and beside. Experience levels range from Baby Boomer to Gen Z (See McKinsey.com). Somewhere in there is the PMO trying to help everyone make sense of everything (or some subset). It all rests on how we feel. Maslow told us the only feeling that matters when its absent is safety.

Increasingly those the PMO directly engages with as suppliers (and maybe customers) publish codes of conduct and ‘preach’ Psychological Safety: A blunt instrument in the hands of the ignorant that does as much or more damage than the historical status quo. In this session a (mostly) clooless session leader will attempt to describe some dos, donts, maybes, insights, pitfalls an benefits from being more clued-up.
