The Evolution of PMO and Where We Are Heading

What changes can we expect in the PMOs of the future? What will be the new skills that PMs will need in the future?



Questions, scenarios, outcomes, what-ifs, plague your clarity on a regular basis. Anticipated success can prompt drilling down to questions like, “how much involvement in project management do I take on?” or “do I step into the clinical phase to ensure better portfolio success?” We will share a few strategic principles that could help with these challenges to support your decision process and successful outcomes. Using a case study wrapped around the concept of Moneyball, we can leverage the advantages of each stage of a project and clinical analysis to directly benefit the portfolio. Learn to examine all outcomes, investigate what you need to reach portfolio goals, explore which factors play the biggest role in optimizing your portfolio, and leverage uncertainty to elevate the business’ strategic success.


Green Ambitions in Pharma Companies - What Project Leaders Can Contribute

Nowadays each company has to commit to defined sustainability goals. Although anchoring these values in the coporate goals paves the way, this radical change has to come from the basis.

Change Management

For any organisational change to be successful, the top management has to communicate and drive the point by creating a buy in. Change leadership has been perceived as a proactive approach to change management.


The world has changed. Now what?

The external forces mainly drive changes in how we work and operate. Do you agree?  I will discuss how we can leverage changes to our benefit, and what is our role as leaders in managing them. Also, how can we prepare for the changes to come. Can we?


Master Uncertainty, Empower your PMs (and yourself)

In this workshop we will focus on the first  and most important Success Principle E+R=O and learn how to create a highly effective mindset and feel more empowered.
