PMOs are increasingly being entrusted with more strategic responsibilities.
A Project Management Office (PMO) is critical to integrating project management into the culture and processes of your organization. Organizations continue to be challenged with the consistent application of defined project management processes, resource planning, forecasting, and other business demands. A well-managed PMO can address these challenges in order to ensure successful project delivery. We work with clients when they need to deploy a new PMO, operate a PMO or optimize and enhance an existing PMO to meet a set of evolving challenges, functions, and services.
To help you build your PMO faster, EES can provide advisory or temporary staffing to address these key PMO success factors:
- Put the PMO in the right location in the organization. Maximize effectiveness with appropriate authority and scope.
- Clearly identify the PMO’s responsibilities. A strong charter keeps early PMO activities focused and establishes consistent expectations for the PMO among the people it will serve.
- Develop a PMO implementation plan. A PMO’s duties should evolve with the evolution of project management in your firm.
Deploying a New PMO
The first step EES takes in deploying a PMO is to assess the current environment and develop a deployment roadmap incorporating your organization’s culture and operating practices. We will work with you to identify, prioritize, and establish a set of fundamental PMO functions and services. Deployment includes establishing governance standards, developing the PMO Charter and communications plan, identifying resource needs and performance measures, incorporating the right amount of repeatable delivery processes to fit your culture, and improving the competencies of your staff through training and mentoring. Emphasis is on the PMO providing an organizational entity focused on improving the management of your portfolio.
Operating a PMO
If project management is not a core competency, consider outsourcing the PMO. EES works in partnership with you to understand your goals and establish a structure that will achieve them. We will evaluate what you currently have in place. Constant communication, incorporating organizational change management, is crucial to the success and is a core principle of our PMO operating model. Performance measures are collectively established upfront with you, and progress toward established goals is continually evaluated via quality and performance reviews.
Enhancing an Existing PMO
PMOs are consistently being challenged to provide additional value to their organizations. To meet business demands, projects must be completed faster and cheaper. The business wants more transparency and they look to the PMO to optimize project resources. We can help your organization rise to the challenge.
To take your PMO to the next level, EES will first review and evaluate your existing PMO structure, and provide recommendations targeted to enhance it. We will develop a transformational roadmap, identifying areas of opportunity, and will collaboratively with you create an implementation plan for deployment. Common areas of focus for this type of transformation may include enhanced visibility, level of PM competency evaluation, portfolio resource optimization, demand management of both project and operations work, and facilitating organizational change. PMOs offering this level of service govern with a senior management focus on strategic issues and facilitate change across the organization.
