Our experience tells us that many organisations think putting in a Project/Program Management Office (PMO) structure or tool magically delivers its benefits! It is common sense that attempting to deliver Projects and Programs (and indeed Portfolios) without an appropriate supporting mechanism significantly reduces the likelihood of Business Case success, outcome achievement and benefit realisation.
But using the wrong PMO type can be just as bad!
We understand that different types of initiatives need different types of PMOs—one type does not fit all—a common mistake many organisations (and providers) make. Does your PMO need a reporting; a controlling or a capability creation and sustainment function—or all of these things? A different structure, skills, controls and approach is needed for each. P2E® can help you get the balance right for your environment.
Recognising the nature of your initiative, its leadership, governance model, delivery environment, priority and business criticality are just some of the factors that change what your PMO needs to do, enable and support.
After all, its focus is to ensure your Projects and Programs are engaging the right stakeholders and doing the right things at the right time to the right quality, always with outcome achievement and benefit realisation as the driving force.
P2E is often asked to recover non-performing PMOs. Of course we can do this. However, we hope we can get you off on the right foot with new initiatives as well! We provide customised PMO Tool solutions to get your PMO working effectively. Either way, we have the right skills, people, best practice knowledge and experience to help you focus on enabling, not blocking the PMO services best suited to your specific business need.
