PMO, Program and Project Implementation


Perhaps you are thinking about opening up a Project Management Office (PMO) in your organisation and need to understand and identify what kind of PMO you need.   Will it be a supportive office, a controlling office or a directive office?  Will this PMO be a project office, a program office or a portfolio office?   Will this PMO assist with reviewing, selecting, prioritising and ranking initiatives?   Will this PMO assist with resource levelling and managing resource constraints?  Will this PMO differentiate initiatives based on enhancements, projects, programs and normal operational work?

We help you define your PMO mandate based on executive requirements and provide you with a roadmap to implement your PMO.

We can also provide you with guidance on scoring models and weighted ranking models and criteria for program and project selection and implementation.
