    This week The PMO Podcast™ Featured Story presents "10th Year Anniversary of the Business Driven PMO," presented by Mark Perry (about Mark), host of The PMO Podcast™. Ten years ago, I gave my first presentation to the formal project management community. I was asked to present a PMO topic at a conference. The topic of my presentation was “The Business Driven PMO.” Over the last decade, I have said a lot. I have listened as well. Naturally, it is hard to boil down a decade of work in promoting this mindset into a two minute elevator pitch, but that is precisely what one must do.

    The PMO Podcast™ Points Memo presents, "What is the opposite of ADD?” Attention Deficit Disorder. You have no doubt heard the term. But what is the opposite of ADD? Would it be Attention Surplus Order or ASO? More and more children have or are developing ADD. School students from K-12 and on into college have ADD. New workers entering the workforce have ADD. And those workers that have been around for some time are now finding new ways to get and exhibit ADD. And, in the context of the workplace, what do we do with these ADD prone folks? We give them iPhones, we give them iPads, netbooks and laptops, social software, we let them office from home. Don’t get me wrong. All of this is has a place, a purpose, a value; but there is also a cost. And in the case of an ADD prone workplace, the cost is charged to and taken from the human element. 

    The PMO Podcast™ Mailbag answers a listener question about a very simple tool or approach for managing a project that can be promoted throughout the business by way of a valued skill to have.
