Goodbye PMO Email

No Comments

Today was my last day with the PMO.  I couldn’t help but send an email to everyone before the SysAdmin locked all of my accounts.

I’ve already gone to security and turned in my badges.  I’ve already talked to everyone I could find.  It is Friday, ya know.  You can’t expect everyone to be in the office.

As I went from office to office, people were telling me how much they liked what I wrote.  So, rather than having is die on a Government email server, I figured I would just publish it here.

Today is the day.

I’m all packed up and ready to go.
Today I will be drinking your coffee, eating your free time, and rambling on about something unrelated to the original conservation.
Ya, sounds like a usual Friday.

Thank you everyone for the lunch yesterday.
You all need to do that more often!

Over time, I’ve realized that project management is a lot less about trying to control things like schedule, budget, and scope and more about building relationships and helping others reach their goals.  After I leave, if there is anything you think I can help you with, please let me know.

All my best,
Derek
