Make your PMO a Great PMO

Understanding why is it so important to belazy’ when managing projects
and what the real value offunis in team productivity.

The session will cover the definition of productive laziness, the science behind the theory (yes there really is some) and will share some personal learning experiences that led to the creation of ‘The Lazy Project Manager’.

In addition, the audience will consider the three key project stages, one of which the ‘lazy’ project manager works very hard in and the second they should be in the comfortable position of enjoying the ‘comfy chair’ safe in the knowledge that the project is well under control, and the final where often some critical work is missed.

Now whilst there is, quite rightly, lots of talk about the serious side of the profession there is a lot less that addresses the more enjoyable aspects of being a great project manager, and so we will also explore the world of ‘The Project Manager Who Smiled’.

Project management is a serious business; but it is a serious business that can be a lot of fun too.

  • A good laugh not only reduces tension and relieves stress, but also helps to increase team bonding and boost morale
  • When you’re happy, you are more productive, more creative, more open, more likeable and a better leader

At the end of this presentation – everyone can be a funny lazy project manager!
