Seminar Description

Topics: Strategic Application and Governance, Strategic Planning and Implementation

Sub-Topics: Portfolio Management, Project Management Office (PMO)

Whether your organization has a PMO or is contemplating creating one, this course offers key principles that help PMO leadership establish and mature a PMO. An incremental approach (i.e., “building blocks”) is presented  that provides PMO leadership an iterative methodology that focuses on using “manageable changes” to build and improve a PMO to successfully deliver the organization’s strategy.
 
This seminar utilizes a ‘hands-on’ approach, and each student will complete an individualized roadmap for immediate use in their own PMO. Participants will be provided with the tools to determine which aspects of project, program and/or portfolio management will be most appropriate for their organizations, and the extent to which they should be implemented.  Participants will evaluate their organization’s culture and maturity to determine the specific PMO functions, the level of rigor and sequence for implementation. Finally, the role that leadership plays in PMO success is reviewed. 

What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:      

  • Effectively identify the current state of their PMO
  • Select and prioritize the appropriate building blocks to establish or improve the results of the PMO. 
  • Coach, develop and retain highly talented and productive teams
