This APM Accredited course is at the core of the Wellingtone PMO Academy and it covers the complexities of the PMO world. It shines a light on the mechanics of successful PMOs with a syllabus covering everything from the PMO context to successful implementation and introduces delegates to the Wellingtone PMO Competence Framework and Maturity Model.

What Our Delegates Say
Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
“The Wellingtone Trainer was fantastic. There were very clear explanations which were very well delivered. All resources provided were clearly laid out and easy to follow.”
“The most useful course in 15 years of project management. Informative with practical examples that can be implemented immediately and with little preparation to provide a better PMO.”
Surrey County Council
“Lots of practical tools and exercises to do in the real world. Good to network and hear how other companies operate. There was a good mix of theory and practical in the course.”
The Manufacturing Technology Centre
“Really inspired/encouraged ways to recognise gaps in our team and how we can implement change.”
“The exercises were great for keeping everyone engaged and really got the group thinking and actively working on things we can start doing straight away. There was a strong focus on PMO vs. Project Management which Emma kept reinforcing. This helped to switch our mindset to PMO specific.”
The Open University
“The Trainer provided us with an extremely informative two days in support of our continuing interest in building our PMO capability. It was greatly appreciated that they took the time in advance of our course to seek information on how best to tailor the content to our specific context in order for us to gain the most value. Highly engaging, enjoyable and thought-provoking!”
The Institute of Cancer Research
“The facilitators were fantastic. They went above and beyond their remit, providing us with a constant flow of knowledge and ideas. It felt more like a bespoke consultancy than an off-the-shelf training syllabus.”
The University of Oxford
“Very informative training course. The exercises were relevant to my job role. The Presenter was excellent and extremely knowledgeable and engaging. They had great examples and stories too.”
