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 three-day course offers key principles that will guide PMO leaders in maturing and/or establishing a PMO. An incremental approach (i.e., “building blocks”) is presented that provides an iterative methodology that focuses on selecting and prioritizing “manageable changes” to improve or build a PMO to successfully deliver the organization’s strategy.
 
This interactive seminar utilizes a very ‘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 provided. 
 

What You Will Learn

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

  • Utilize a toolset to effectively determine the current and future states of their PMO
  • Examine a variety of sources and utilize various "lenses" to select and prioritize the appropriate building blocks to improve or establish the results of their individual PMO
  • Develop a customized PMO roadmap that aligns perfectly to their unique organization
