PMO Building Blocks for Successful Strategic Initiative Management with Claudia Baca
DescriptionTopics: Strategic Application and Governance | Strategic Planning and Implementation | Project Management | Project Management Office PMO
Whether your organization has a PMO or is contemplating creating one, this three-day course offers key principles that will guide PMO leaders in maturing and/or establishing a PMO. An incremental approach (i.e., “building blocks”) is presented that provides an iterative methodology that focuses on selecting and prioritizing “manageable changes” to improve or build a PMO to successfully deliver the organization’s strategy.
This interactive seminar utilizes a very ‘hands-on’ approach, and each student will complete an individualized roadmap for immediate use in their own PMO. Participants will be provided with the tools to determine which aspects of project, program and/or portfolio management will be most appropriate for their organizations, and the extent to which they should be implemented. Participants will evaluate their organization’s culture and maturity to determine the specific PMO functions, the level of rigor, and provided.
