Project management frameworks:

PMO Establishment & Enhancement

The Project Management Office (PMO) is a strategic tool in the hands of an organization's management to ensure that all the projects in the business are under control. The PMO gives a centralized view of project costs, resources, and risks, and is the centre of project implementation where it is ensured that the portfolio is well-managed and delivering benefits to the organization.

The need

Organizations who perform multiple projects regularly struggle to prioritise needs, balance resources, standardise project delivery methods, and most crucially, consistently achieve project success.  This is because they often don’t have a bird’s eye view of all the projects and are usually uncertain of human resource capabilities and capacity, as well as individual project progress or lack thereof.   In short, project efforts are poorly synchronised, which, combined with disorganised project support, results in less than optimal project delivery.

A well-functioning PMO is an ideal solution to this dilemma.  It provides a centralised view that enables the effective planning and coordination of resources.  It facilitates consistency throughout projects, thereby increasing the likelihood of repeatable project success.  It ensures that all projects are initiated, planned, executed, controlled and closed in a regular manner, following consistent methods.

Lady at her desk

No two organisations have exactly the same needs when it comes to project management, and these differences should be reflected in the way the PMO is implemented. To assist organisations, ProjectLink developed the Project Office Implementation Toolkit (POINT) Methodology. POINT was developed from experiences in setting up and operating several PMOs in diverse industries. POINT covers all the aspects of the PMO and is a fail-safe way of ensuring strategic alignment of projects with the organisation’s strategy.
