Many organisations, who recognise the important contribution that project, program & portfolio (P3) management makes to their business success, have a PMO. It sounds good, but what is it? PMO stands for Project Management Office. PMOs are normally characterised by 3 key responsibilities:
* Administrative support & assistance for project managers
* Collection, assessment and reporting of project information, and
* Assurance that project management processes are being used appropriately
In addition the PMO will often be involved in resource management, knowledge management, project coaching, governance and strategic planning, but the function is best uniquely structured to fit within the existing organisation.
Setting up a PMO (project or programme) can seem a daunting task. Where does one start, who can be spared to successfully drive it through? Having been through the experience themselves, ProjExc consultants will support clients deliver this business change, guiding them through the challenges of finding appropriate process / methodologies, identifying, sourcing and implementing the right tools, and sourcing and integrating the right people with the right competence to make it all work together.
Using their proven techniques and thorough understanding of the subject, ProjExc have a scalable system for implementing a PMO for all types of organisation, big and small. What’s more they use the systems from their own PMO, to implement your PMO. Just another example of ProjExc practicing what they preach.
