Setting up and Running a PMO: a Discussion of Pitfalls

Time: 18.00 Location: Regus Offices, Bruxelles-Midi Type: Workshop Language:

QRP International has a long experience in organising training for project, programme and portfolio managers. QRP has assisted many professionals and their organization in setting up and running a PMO. Following a training is a first step in getting inspired. Translating this inspiration into practice is the second step and in traditional training, this is not part of a course and each delegate is left alone. The road to successfully implement what you have learned is often hard and lonely as a strategic PMO is just a few (or even one) persons within a large organisation.


This user group has the aim to respond to this need. The goal is to bring similar backgrounds and profiles together to discuss specific topics within PMO management. This session will be guided by a PMO expert that will manage the discussion.


  • Discuss your doubts and issues on setting up and running a PMO
  • Discover practical solution of others
  • Talk to an expert trainer/consultant
  • Get inspired


  • What is the best way to set up a PMO?
  • Relationship between PM’s and the PMO
  • How to avoid bureaucracy in your PMO and the whole PM organisation
  • How to select the right projects with objective criteria?
  • Relationship between PMO and Top management
  • How to define good and objective criteria to prioritize projects in the organization?
  • Discuss examples of best practice (templates/completed documents)
  • How to install principles for resource management?
  • How does the PMO deals with getting control of Agile projects
  • Relationship and collaboration between different PMO’s in the same organisation
  • How continuously improve the PMO?
