Setting up and running a PMO – PM Success factors

Time: 17.00 Location: Regus Brussels City Centre, Avenue Louise 65, Box 11, Brussels Type: Workshop Language:

QRP International has a long experience in organising training for project, programme and portfolio managers. QRP has assisted many professionals and their organization in setting up and running a PMO. Following a training is a first step in getting inspired. Translating this inspiration into practice is the second step and in traditional training, this is not part of a course and each delegate is left alone. The road to successfully implementing what you have learned is often hard and lonely as a strategic PMO is just a few (or even one) person(s) within a large organisation.


This user group has the aim to respond to this need. The goal is to bring similar backgrounds and profiles together to discuss specific topics within PMO management.

During this edition a User will introduce his PMO topic, before opening the floor to the other Users in a break-out discussion format.


PM Success Factors: myths vs. reality – Richard Coppens, Senior Project Director at ESINCOR

During his presentation Richard will start off by tackling the grand question of “why projects fail”. He will draw on his experience to debunk some common PM myths and argue that preventing root causes for project failure is key. Here, in his eyes, is where the importance of a good PM coach comes in, that can support the PM along the way. Richard will also dedicate some time to demonstrate how the PMO can play a major role in this coaching process.
