Project Management Office Establishment and Enhancement

pmo_wgk_wpHas your organization concluded that establishing a formal Project Management Office (PMO) will improve project performance? Do you have an existing PMO that needs to take on new roles and responsibilities in order to meet the needs of your organization?

The WGK Group can assist with the initial standup of a PMO and with taking an existing PMO to the next level.

Establishing a new PMO

As a first step to establish a new PMO we review the current situation examining factors such as:

  • project portfolio,
  • IT plans and strategy,
  • project management processes,
  • technology,
  • organization structure,
  • past results, and
  • organizational culture.

We work with stakeholders to develop a vision for the PMO that fits the organization. When the vision is approved we then develop the comprehensive plan for the PMO including

  • roles and responsibilities,
  • processes,
  • governance,
  • standards,
  • resource needs,
  • success measures, and
  • transition plan.

We can also assist with the standup of the PMO.

Enhancing an existing PMO

With an existing PMO we begin by reviewing the current situation examining aspects such as:

  • PMO roles and responsibilities,
  • processes and standards,
  • history and lessons learned, and
  • business and IT plans and strategy.

Based on this review we develop a proposed vision for the next generation PMO. Once this vision is approved we develop the plan for the enhanced PMO including:

  • roles and responsibilities,
  • processes,
  • governance,
  • standards,
  • resource needs,
  • success measures, and
  • transition plan.

We can also assist with the transition to the new PMO role.

Applying our experience will ensure you get the maximum return on your investment in your PMO.
