Prepare an Actionable Roadmap for Your PMO

Turn planning into action with a realistic PMO timeline.

Book This Workshop

PMOs can’t do everything and be all things to all people. An ineffective PMO might see the following situations:

  • No visibility into projects.
  • The organization views the PMO as unnecessary overhead.
  • The PMO is not properly staffed to support the organization’s needs.
  • Project managers and staff aren’t providing information or following processes.
  • Leadership and sponsors are disengaged.

Define limits with a strong mandate and effective staffing. Make sure you have the skills and capacity to support required PMO functions. Follow this process to build an effective PMO:

  • Establish the purpose of your PMO.
  • Analyze the staffing requirements.
  • Create a roadmap or plan before implementing any new process.
  • Perform organizational change management to sustain beneficial business outcomes.
