  4. 4. 2.0 PMO definition PMO is the acronym for Project Management Office. Sometimes it may be referred to as Programme Management Office. Some alternatives are PSO, Project Support Office or PO, Project Office. Official Definition The Project Management Institute (PMI) defines a PMO as follows: “An organizational body or entity assigned various responsibilities related to the centralised and coordinated management of those projects under it’s domain. The responsibilities of the PMO can range from providing project management support functions to actually being responsible for the direct management of a project”[1] In simple terms the PMO is a function that is given the responsibility to deliver the projects within it’s scope to a single defined set of standards so as to provide management with a greater visibility of project performance and to increase the probability of success through standardisation / good practice. Copyright 2015. All rights reserved. www.pmmajik.com
  5. 5. 3.0 PMO objectives Primary Purpose to provide a framework that will support all stakeholders and project teams to improve the probability of successful delivery. An organisation embarks on a project to achieve an outcome. This involves the investment of valuable resources (people, money, time). If the PMO does not improve the probability of successfully project delivery it is not doing it’s job and is not needed. There will be other objectives depending on each organisation. However, the primary purpose should always be true! Copyright 2015. All rights reserved. www.pmmajik.com
  6. 6. 4.0 Types of PMO There are 3 types of PMO: •Administrative / Reporting PMO •Hybrid PMO •Managerial / Pro-active PMO Copyright 2015. All rights reserved. www.pmmajik.com
  7. 7. 4.1 Administrative / Reporting PMO The Administrative or Reporting PMO (report clearing house) is the basic form of PMO. Due to this it is the type of PMO that most management have experience of. The main purpose of an Administrative PMO is: •Report consolidation •Report distribution •Track deliverables / milestones •Programme administration •Document management Copyright 2015. All rights reserved. www.pmmajik.com More information: http://www.pmmajik.com/description-administrative-reporting-pmo/
  8. 8. 4.2 Managerial / Pro-active PMO At the other end of the spectrum to Reporting PMO is the managerial / pro-active PMO. This type of PMO will usually provide all of the services of a reporting PMO and additionally any number of the following: •Review and challenge project reporting •Trend analysis (i.e. identifying common themes impacting project delivery) •Coaching / Mentoring •Interpret strategy / mobilise / shape programme •Actively manage risks / issues / cross dependencies •Actively manage the delivery of milestones •Actively manage benefit realisation •Actively manage costs including allocation and cost recovery models •Define project methodology for use on the programme •Recruit and own programme and project managers •Provide recommendations to senior management on remediation action Copyright 2015.

  9. 9. 4.3 Hybrid PMO In many cases a PMO is implemented that is somewhere between the Reporting and Managerial models (or even one that starts of as administrative but then grows to take on more functions). The common term for this type of PMO is a hybrid PMO. Unfortunately, as this type of PMO can be anywhere between the 2 extremes there is not clean way of defining what it does or does not include as scope. However, a hybrid PMO will typically include all of the functions of the administrative PMO and then take on some of the following: •Manage and Change Control process •Pro-active risk / issue management •Facilitate cross dependency workshops •Facilitate cross programme communications •Increased level of review of deliverables and documentation Not an exhaustive list, more to try and provide the type of behaviour of a hybrid PMO.

  10. 10. 4.4 PMO maturity The PMO can start out as an Administrative / Reporting function and then as it matures, add additional services to increase value. Copyright 2015. All rights reserved. www.pmmajik.com
  11. 11. 5.0 PMO engagement Stakeholders “Interested parties who need to be either consulted or informed” PMO “Custodianofstandards,costs,benefits.Providing executionsupporttodriverthedelivery” Steer Co “Senior management empowered to make decisions” Sponsor “Passionate about the business case” Project Team “Dedicated ring fenced resources to deliver agreed scope” Project Manager “Responsible for the delivery of the business case on behalf of the Sponsor” The PMO will engage with many different stakeholders. If set-up correctly, the PMO will be the ‘glue’ between all of the stakeholders. Copyright 2015. All rights reserved. www.pmmajik.com
  12. 12. 6.0 PMO structures PMO structures will vary from organisation to organisation. The structure will be driven by the type of PMO: •Managerial – tend to be centralised with resources working in PMO structure •Administrative – tend to be dispersed with small central PMO linking into project PMO’s •Hybrid – will be structured in-between Copyright 2015.
