Participants in the UCSC Extension advanced course on the “Project Management Office” had ample opportunity to explore their environmental challenges, share questions with others, and prepare action plans on implementing a project office for organizational change. They came with real questions and left with renewed understandings about the potential for anything from a Project Office of One (POO) to a Strategic Project Office (SPO).
Along the way we viewed movies and listened to sound clips, such as about animals in the zoo of the political jungle, learning from nature as a master and commander, and being the ring bearer to get the job done.
It now remains for them to go forth and apply these learnings. I encourage them to post their comments about their journeys.
