Valdi Gravitis, Founder NSW Whole of Gov. PMO Community of PracticeIs Your PMO Cursed to Fail? 
Have you ever stopped and considered how deep the PMO graveyard in your organisation is?  
3 deep? 
The multi-million dollar question is: Are you doing anything different? 
Or is your PMO cursed to fail too?  
Almost every organisation has tried at least once to build a functioning and sustainable Project, Program or Portfolio Management Office ...And almost every organisation has failed. 
Well, I have dug up the skeletons, avoided the zombies, aired out the tombs, outrun the boulders and uncovered the common cause of PMO death. Want to know what I found?The PMOs Were Worthless! 
But all isn't lost. What if I said that you could reverse the trend?  
Could you be the hero who pulls the sword from the stone and stops the curse? 
Let this guide be the Merlin to your King Arthur. It contains everything you will need to finally break the cycle (while showing everyone else, once again, that you can achieve the impossible). 
So, You Want to Create a High Value PMO? 
What landed you here?Perhaps you are frustrated with the lack of logic in allocating change investment?Or maybe you are staring at an overwhelming number of reports, systems, frameworks and methodologies?Do your project managers need a capability boost?Or is it that the information you need just isn't there?Maybe you are about to commence a large program of work?Or is it just chaos - and your projects are running amok.

    A twenty-first–century sales philosophy that “gets straight to the point about what works, and what doesn’t work in today’s marketplace” (Kevin Kruse, New York Times-bestselling author of 15 SecretsSuccessful People Know About Time Management, Founder and CEO of LeadX). 
    Being successful at sales has nothing to do with “selling.” The best salespeople are the ones who are always curious—not always closing. Succeed Without Selling contains everything a small business owner or sales professional needs to know about what it takes to be successful. From prospecting to discovery to referrals and strategic alliances, it’s all covered. There are even chapters for sales managers, direct sellers, and service providers. 
    Succeed Without Selling also includes resources like sample scripts and proposal templates. Anyone who wants to grow their business will find actionable, easy-to-follow information to help them embrace the value of being more interested in others than in making the sale. Succeed Without Selling changes the way readers look at the sales process forever—and stops them from engaging in behaviors that just don’t work.
