Program Management Office
Business demand will continue to outpace an organization's ability to meet the demand and place undue pressures on resources that are already over-committed. A Program Management Office (PMO) provides project stakeholders, project managers, and project teams with the processes, tools, information, resource planning, and organizational infrastructures required to effectively deliver projects. The PMO facilitates collaboration of multiple projects and resources by providing centralized management of project risks, issues, changes, costs, and schedules. We can help you define and implement the key functions of a PMO.
Central to the PMO is the definition, implementation, and administration of a project repository for all projects.
Project Initiation and Prioritization
The PMO is responsible for establishing and supporting processes that are critical to the alignment of resources to business strategies. These processes set cross-functional business priorities and provide governance over capital investments.
Project Tracking and Reporting
The PMO presents key project metrics, status reporting, budget tracking, and schedule tracking as a consolidated performance scorecard that provides an organization's management with a practical tool for measuring progress.
Resource Capacity Planning
The PMO establishes and supports resource capacity planning processes and tools to ensure that workloads and project commitments are in alignment.
For multiple, cross-functional, related projects, the PMO provides overall coordination activities to ensure that program objectives are met. This includes managing resources, risks, issues, estimates, budget, and scheduling across related projects.
Combined with Kaslen Project Management Services, we can help your PMO establish project management as a core competency and provide experienced project managers to lead your critical projects or coordinate your programs.
