    You may disagree with me – that is fine, it does not make me wrong any more than my views make you wrong!
  • This workshop is in the context of introducing a PMO where there has never been one or they have failed in the past. Shamelessly use the ADKAR process
  • The only person that can deliver this message is the highest authority in the business
  • Can be most difficult, driven by line managers and champions
    Embrace early adopters
    IF there is no desire that will be no success.
