Posted by Amy Dingle on 9/22/16 2:31 PM


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.

Technology Manifesto: Technology and Digital Transformation Leaders Come Together

Posted by Amy Fowler Stadler on 9/21/16 9:24 AM

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending and facilitating a panel at the annual HMG CIO Summit conference in Denver, along with hundreds of other practitioners and technology leading sponsors. If you are a CIO, these events are a must attend!  It not only allows you to hear leadership strategies from top global CIOs, but also allows you to get unfiltered opinions and hear unbiased research about the latest technologies.  The theme this year was The CIO as CEO of Technology: The Courage to Lead in the Future Enterprise.  I have participated in these events for years here and in other major cities.  I was reminded of the amazing buzz you have when that many leaders and innovators are together in one place talking about what is needed to transform our global economy through technology.  I happen to be an early adopter, and it was clear from the start that we all have an incredible passion for technology.

Findings from the COGA Rocky Mountain Energy Summit

Posted by Kevin Lewis on 9/9/16 11:00 AM

I attended the Rocky Mountain Energy Summit last week here in Denver and had a few observations.

Optimism

Many industry people that I know and met at the show are increasing optimistic about the state of the Oil and Gas industry. I asked everyone that I spoke with how they felt about the industry and what they felt the near term looked like.  Contrary to the last two years, attendees were much more optimistic and looking forward to a more predictable pricing environment and an increase in spending and exploration budgets.  It definitely felt like a significant change to me.
