Building & Running a Project Management Office PMO


Setting up a Project Management Office (PMO) may seem like a daunting task, but this course will really help you by providing a logical model for setting up a PMO and using the PMO to deploy project management products and services throughout the organisation.

This is a highly practical course which utilises a case study and the participants own situation to give a practical understanding to the theory covered. It's a short but packed 1-day course, delivered by specialists who have many years relevant experience and relevant international qualifications.

The course is suitable for:
• Managers that are considering establishing a PMO
• All project management and other people that may staff the PMO
• Clients, stakeholders & anyone that has an interest in establishing a successful PMO

At the end of this class, participants will be able to:
• Discuss the role of a PMO and the overall value provided
• Understand all the basic PMO services
• Build a general PMO deployment model
• Identify more sophisticated PMO services

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 organizations 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”.
