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
