Topic: A Practical Conversation About PMO Beginnings
Organizations are increasingly relying on the creation of PMOs (Project Management Offices) to support the implementation of key strategic initiatives. But unlike the establishment of other organizational functions; the creation of a PMO is often riddled with unconventional challenges. Studies have shown that up to 75% of companies that set up a PMO shut it down within 3 years because of unrealized enterprise value.
A PMO that is structured to fulfill the specific needs of the organization or the business vertical is supporting will stand a better chance to deliver long-term value. Whether a PMO is organized to deliver initiatives in a traditional, an Agile, or a hybrid approach; there are key organizational factors any leader establishing a PMO must address. These organizational factors are pervasive across companies and are instrumental in defining the structure, composition, and path to value-delivery for any PMO.
Join us for a 1-hour session to have a contemporary conversation about the organizational factors that must be considered when implementing a new PMO.

According to PMI research (Business Analysis Leading Organizations to Better Outcomes) many organizations have failed to make business analysis an integral part of their project work. When this occurs, projects suffer often failing to deliver anything close to their original intended value. In fact, according to the 2017 PMI Pulse of the Profession® report, inaccurate requirements is the second leading cause of project failure (39%), second only to changes in an organization’s priorities (41%).
