About the Program:
The Strategic PMO
Building or maintaining a successful PMO can be a daunting endeavor. Between skeptical customers, increasingly complex projects, and austere budgets, PMO’s have struggled to gain acceptance and deliver value. With a growing inventory of projects, PMO’s require a new game plan – one that begins at the top and looks to add value down to the transaction level. Many organizations are implementing the “Strategic PMO” as a way to link governance, portfolios, projects, and customers. As the essential middle layer between on-the-ground projects and the executive suite, PMO’s have an imperative to deliver value to their customers. The strategic PMO is built around specific functions that add the greatest value across the organization. Jon will discuss one approach for building a new PMO or improving an existing one that delivers value right away.
