The PMO Forum acts as an invitation-only Interest Group of Project Management South Africa (PMSA) and is sponsored by Project Portfolio Office (PPO).

The forum presents a regular opportunity for discussion and knowledge transfer by means of case studies, best practices, research outcomes and lessons learned presented by senior project professional and other knowledgeable individuals who form part of the forum or may be invited as presenters.  There are no costs involved for attendees as the event is sponsored. Each meeting is dedicated to a specific topic where a subject matter expert introduces the topic in a 45-60 min talk and we then have structured conversations around the topic in smaller groups. 


Today’s enterprise PMO faces some tough challenges. PMOs must adapt and align to organisational changes, continue to deliver business outcomes through improved efficiencies and keep resources on track all while evolving operations for a hybrid project management environment. Join the next session to learn more about Dimension Data’s ongoing journey to an agile enterprise -highlighting the highs and lows and some of the hard lessons this organisation has experienced in delivering complex programmes in this changing environment.


With PhDs in chemistry and biochemistry, Shaun Kirchmann made the decision to re-skill in process engineering, and apply those skills on the African continent. With a strong background in process re-engineering and process optimisation, using Six Sigma, Design for Six Sigma, SAFe, and Lean, as well as having extensive experience in the setup, coordination and day-to-day operations of PMOs.

He has worked extensively across the African continent with Dimension data, where he has been for the last 10 years primarily involved in PMO implementations, project and programme management in the FMCG, Medical, Financial, IT, and telecommunications verticals both locally and internationally.
