What do Sisyphus, Attila the Hun, the Quakers, and early cartographers have in common with creating a project office?
They all represent metaphors that guide modern managers to implement a project office for organizational change. You may decide to become a POO–a Project Office of One, or your organization may need a SPO–a Strategic Project Office.
Find out how these metaphors and practices can guide you as a change agent to lead the quest towards a projectized organization…or at least towards an organization more people and process friendly with regards to project based work. A project office is an ideal mechanism to lead organizational change.
These are the topics covered in the upcoming UCSC Extension course on The Project Management Office, starting December 1, 2009 in Santa Clara, CA.
