As we get closer to the Colorado PMO Forum next week on September 29th, get to know our guest speaker John Kocon!
What was your professional journey to becoming a PMO leader?
I began my career in the Aerospace Industry as a Financial Analyst supporting Engineering and Manufacturing organizations. My responsibilities initially centered around Financial planning and management, but expanded to include resource management and earned value reporting. As the company was awarded additional and larger Department of Defense contracts, my responsibilities increased to include the implementation of a Project Management Information System (PMIS). This became my first role as a Project Support Office (PSO) leader. In order to improve collaboration, communication and performance across multiple business units, I established project management standards that were awarded company best practice. This experience formed the foundation that I built upon and led to a series of PMO leadership roles across a wide range of industries.
