We therefore analysed the actual situation and what were our strenghts and weaknesses. And that is where we identified the four critical success factors below.”

    Project Management - PMO Management -
    English

    This PMI Insitute White Paper focuses on how important it is for projects to deliver strategic objectives: it is not enough for projects to come in on time and on budget. They must also be in sync with strategy. Organizations talk a good game about strategy. But without the right projects and programs to carry them out, even the most forward-thinking strategies fail. To help bridge the chasm between high-level strategic vision and in-the-trenches  implementation, many organizations turn to a project management office (PMO).  If an organization decides to establish a PMO, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. The article outlines five of the most common PMO frameworks and shows the case of Verizon Wireless (USA based).

    This is a KEY document for anyone embarking in a PMO challenge. As project management has become accepted as a mainstream management discipline, many organisations have established a PMO (Portfolio, Programme or Project Management Office) function to increase the maturity of their project management approach. The scope, power and day to day responsibilities of each of these offices differs widely, comprising a mixture of strategic and tactical functions. This paper describes the community of stakeholders that benefit from the existence of a PMO, the services that are most important to them, the key challenges that PMOs are facing and the ideas that are helping to meet these challenges. An example of “PMO stakeholder map” is shown, and further more, some ideas about how to incorporate agile principles into existing project management approaches are presented. This is a KEY document for anyone embarking in a PMO challenge.

    You are a Project Manager, and most probably hold one (or more) great Project Management certifications. What’s next? Most of professionals in the Project Management world already know about Programme, Portfolio and PMO management; some of them already work at PMO level for example, having helped with the set up of a “Centre of Excellence” in their organization. But how do you know what is the right next step after Project Management? How to identify the right action that can fit your needs? A few years ago, you would sometimes hear project management called “The Accidental Profession”. This was the idea that we became project managers, not by design, but by accident. Professionals started as specialists in IT, Engineering, Real Estate, Construction or whatever; today we have been transformed into project managers. If you find yourself in this situation, you may be missing the skills for your new “accidental” career… This article clearly explains some of next possible steps after Project Management.
