PMO Notebook has information for Program Managers, Project Managers, Scrum practitioners and PMO Leaders.

My focus in the first part of 2024 has been The Effective Program Manager series - these 12 articles cover topics for new Program Directors and Program Managers, as well as information on advanced topics for those with significant experience.   These articles cover methods for delivering business value and outstanding program outcomes (these are a passion of mine), techniques for developing a strong understanding of yourself, your business partners and the program team, and the importance and nuances of working with executive stakeholders.  (These articles won't cover the basics of planning, monitoring execution, reporting and such - that information is widely available elsewhere.). A few of those articles are highlighted immediately below, and the full index appears here.

For mid-2024, I'm starting a collection of articles on IT Portfolio Management, covering the importance of this function and techniques for a robust implementation.

In late summer, I'll continue refreshing the agile and Scrum articles (all written over a decade ago) along with the project management articles.
