This presentation tells the story of a Confluence makeover that involved taking a failing, misused wiki and transforming it to support the needs of an evolving Project Management Office (PMO). From this case study, themes emerged that illuminate the practices which turn a wiki from the wrong side of the tracks to an indispensable resource for the PMO. I align features (and plug-ins) in Confluence with the practices I learned that will make projects run smoothly. I describe how Confluence can be used to enhance the mission of the Project Management Office (PMO). I identify different PMO value models and outline the major functions in relation to how they can be facilitated by Confluence. I compare varying approaches to the use of Confluence from small to large knowledge management needs. I describe how transparency can be achieved in project governance with the use of Confluence. I offer some insight into project auditing and business alignment using Confluence. I also describe how confluence can be used to strengthen operational resiliency. Through my description of this authentic case study, I lay-out best practices to using features in Confluence to support the functions of a Project Management Office.
