Top three considerations for #PMO deployment best practices

It all starts with good intentions; your good intentions to make a positive impact on the business, your good intentions to help the business become organized, and your good intentions to improve efficiencies and effectiveness. You’re thinking creatively, you’re excited about making positive changes and you’re full of optimistic energy. Yet with all these good intentions, your attempt to deploy a Project Management Office (PMO) is met with resistance from colleagues and fraught with difficulties in implementation. 

Why? 

Corey Spagnoli, Senior director of Continuous Improvement PMO from NCR Corporation, a PMO veteran with 13 years’ experience, talks through three of his most problematic examples of PMO rollout in IT and Continuous Improvement environments, and the critical success factors involved. Corey talks us through his PMO deployment mistakes, demonstrates the pitfalls to avoid, and shows us how to overcome the difficulties, becoming one of our PMO rollout success stories. 

Corey’s advice is to consider three key elements for a successful PMO rollout:

    1). Understand the needs of the business

    2). Match to the business culture

    3). Build in flexibility

    Read about the three key elements in more detail here. Full article here.

    Comments:

    The following principles remain evident with PMOs:
    *The introduction of a PMO is a significant organisational change – implementation must be carefully planned to align with your organisation's working culture & goals.
    *To reap benefits from your projects, the PMO must be deployed consistently & efficiently.
    *The PMO has no universal definition, so the PMO function, role & service needs to be defined for each organisation.
    *It's crucial to review the PMO regularly, because the consistent, efficient PMO adapts & changes with the business.
