An effective and value-added Project Management Office (PMO) drives efficiency and instills confidence. On-time and on-budget performance is the norm, not project delays and blown budgets. If your current PMO isn’t achieving your goals, inconsistent project management processes, a lack of standardized procedures, or untrained staff could be to blame. Today’s complex projects require robust project management capabilities and communication skills to lead a distributed workforce. IPM’s project management experts tailor a roadmap to create and support a PMO you can trust to get things done.
A Project Management Office leads an organization’s project management initiatives and elevates its capabilities. With the right project management tools, templates, processes, methodologies, and governance, you can improve decision making and execution of projects and programs. IPM’s consultants will:
With a roadmap in hand, IPM can either partner with you to implement the recommendations, lead your PMO, or work with you to design, build, and lead a collaborative PMO.
Assess your PMO maturity and capabilities
Using a proprietary approach, IPM evaluates your current methodologies, tools, and capabilities. We’ll examine your PMO’s governance, decision making, and communication to identify areas of improvement. Your key takeaways are recommendations and a detailed roadmap to enhance your PMO and add more value to your organization.
Implement or enhance your PMO function
With the recommendations and roadmap in hand, we’ll work with you to establish or improve your PM methods, processes, tools, and templates. Tapping deep experience and current best practices, IPM consultants will develop or enhance your resource management and PMO governance, including reporting, communication, and decision making. We’ll address the people skills you need to take your PMO to the next level, whether that means coaching or providing on-site PMO leadership. IPM can also help select PM or PPM software to meet your needs and lead the implementation to ensure successful adoption and integration.
Lead your PMO
Expert leadership can help you reach your goals faster. IPM can lead your PMO, Integration Management Office, Strategy Realization Office, Transformation Management Office, or Enterprise Project Management Office to get you off to a strong start and add value quickly.
Design, build, and lead a Collaborative PMO
There is no denying it takes time to build a mature PMO. If you can’t afford to wait, IPM’s Collaborative PMO might be the answer. This fully staffed and rapidly deployed PMO will immediately add value to your organization, leaving your team to focus on what they do best. A flexible solution, a Collaborative PMO allows you to scale up, down, or change direction, based on your changing needs.
Few companies have the project management experience and track record of IPM. In the past five years alone, IPM has played a part in maturing dozens of PMOs. We’ve led multiple Collaborative PMOs, including a five-year stint at a global biotechnology company. With a team of Project Management Professionals (PMP), Portfolio Management Professionals (PfMP), and Risk Management Professionals (RMP), many with advanced degrees and Agile certifications, we can access specific talents as needed.
Because project management is IPM’s core competency, you can count on us to improve your project, program, and portfolio management execution with a value-added PMO.
