Your Challenge

  • The PMO is not properly staffed to support the organization’s needs.
  • There is little to no visibility into projects.
  • The organization views the PMO as unnecessary overhead.
  • Project staff do not follow processes.
  • Leadership and sponsors are disengaged.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • Don’t rush to the assumption that PMO staff starts with accomplished project managers.
  • Staff the PMO according to its actual role and needs.

Impact and Result
