A Program Management Office (PMO) gives organizations the ability to achieve consistently successful results across their entire portfolio of projects; creating a foundation that can turn project management into a competitive advantage. Whether your organization is just beginning to explore the benefits of a formal PMO, or your existing PMO is not achieving the results management has intended, Platinum PMO can help take your PMO to the next level.
We take a business-centric approach and include the operational readiness as well as the technology readiness work streams in all our project plans. This means that we include business process definition, end-user training, and organization re-design in addition to configuration and development, testing and infrastructure readiness.
We consider the unique needs and corporate culture of each of our clients and work quickly to create a framework that is most appropriate for meeting the challenges at hand. We draw on elements of several well-known toolsets including ASAP/Activate, Agile, PMBOK, Six Sigma and Theory of Constraints. We leverage these methodologies and tailor your PMO to manage:
- Cost-benefit analysis
- Project evaluation/ Demand management
- Human capital planning
- Communication management
- Risk management
- Quality management
- Cost management
- Earned value management
- Procurement/Vendor management
- Schedule management
- Scope management
- Time management
- Integration management
We have a proven track record when it comes to managing complex enterprise programs. We adept at managing large, dispersed teams and sorting out interdependent timelines and resource requirements. We couple deep business expertise with broad technology awareness. Our first task is working with Client’s executive team to define an appropriate PMO roadmap. This roadmap must then be translated into a series of actionable initiatives and a high level deliverable plan. At that point, the interdependencies can be identified and We work with individual project teams to define project plans that can be tracked against a standardized set of work products.
From the Preparation through the Sustain phase, we support my clients in achieving program success.
