Things to not forget when implementing a Portfolio Office

  1. 1. Meandering thoughts: Things to not forget when you’re implementing or re-energising a Portfolio Office By Craig Kilford
  2. 2. You are a cost, absolutely everything a Portfolio Office does must add value (never ever, ever forget this!)
  3. 3. X-ray before you operate
  4. 4. Identify the great things you do already (and the not so great)
  5. 5. Find out what people think of you
  6. 6. What people perceive about your Portfolio Office is reality
  7. 7. It’s not about “communication” anymore…its about “conversation”
  8. 8. Collaborate!
  9. 9. Understand your own capability
  10. 10. Would you let a non-dentist give you root canal surgery?
  11. 11. Energise people, get them excited about this stuff
  12. 12. Create a shared “as-is” and “to-be” state for your Portfolio Office (Craig’s portfolio painting workshops will help you with this)
  13. 13. Every PMO product must look Great, be Usable, Clear, Concise and Informative….(and sexy)
  14. 14. “Would like to meet VGL P3O for LTR, must have VGSOH, NS & ND with OHAC for LOFAPS maybe even BDSM”… (acronyms really suck)
  15. 15. Life is just too short
  16. 16. This stuff is new for some people, smile and help them.
  17. 17. Measure PMO happiness regularly (I’m not joking, do it, it’s important!)
  18. 18. Always wear amazing shoes and fabulous socks (yes these are mine)
  19. 19. Suggest a presentation subject by emailing Or Tweeting @MrPortfolio
