Developing a proposal for implementing a PMO

When a project consultant is assigned to implement a Project Management Office (PMO), he can either recommend a packaged kit, or develop a specifically tailored PMO proposal. This article favors the latter approach and offers a ten-step process for developing a custom PMO proposal: 1) identify and assess needs of all stakeholders; 2) understand the project dependencies; 3) identify the range of required PMO functions; 4) develop the scope statement (or project mandate); 5) describe a step-by-step implementation process; 6) specify critical project success factors; 7) list all deliverables; 8) develop a project plan which includes milestones, deliverables, and cost figures; 9) present the proposal convincingly to the client; and 10) begin the implementation.
