Building and Running a PMO (Project Management Office)

10 Nov 2017 (€595 per seat)
Dublin
1 Day
Purpose: 

This is a practical course which utilises a case study and the participants own situation to give a practical understanding to the theory covered.

Organisations around the world are implementing formal project management processes and disciplines to deliver their work initiatives on time, within budget and to an agreed upon level of quality. Part of the ability to execute better, faster and cheaper comes from the ability to implement common processes and practices across your entire organisation.

When that happens there is no learning curve for the project manager and the team members as they transition from one project to another. Many organisations have accomplished this through a centralised organisation that is responsible for developing and deploying the common project management methodology.

These groups are often referred to as a "Project Management Office (PMO)", “Project Office” or “Project Management Centre of Excellence”.

Setting up a PMO may seem like a daunting task, but this class can help by providing a logical model for setting up a PMO and using the PMO to deploy project management products and services throughout the organisation.

Suitable for: 
  • Managers that are considering establishing a PMO
  • All project management and other people that may staff the PMO
  • Clients and all stakeholders that have an interest in establishing a successful PMO
