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.


An organisation’s success can be directly linked to its project success. Successful PMO leaders look beyond the tactical “on-time” and “under budget” drivers to make sure their projects deliver against business strategy. These leaders elevate the PMO to a strategic decision-making level. But what does it take to get there?

This event explores what it takes to move PMOs and PMO leaders to think big and play a larger role in helping drive organisational success. During the session we will use facilitated discussions to draw on the knowledge, experience and expertise of our members to help shape this view.

Why a facilitated session?

PMO forum feedback has indicated a need for more interactive sessions and table discussions. To address this need, our next event will be facilitated by Subject Matter Experts who will lead the session, presenting leading practice thinking and then facilitating in-depth conversations around the implementation there-of. The real value of the session will come from the diverse insights and experiences shared in the session. It promises to be highly practical, providing you with useful insights and practical action plans.
