The path to better project performance always includes practical standards for selecting, prioritizing, and managing projects.
Implementing and maintaining these standards is best done by a team that is typically known as a Project Management Office, or PMO. The idea is simple, but building an effective, enduring PMO is anything but simple. This webinar will lay out the path to build a PMO that creates noticeable, lasting results.
Webinar presenters Emil Tarka and Pete Matassa have been building PMOs and delivering project management courses for over fifteen years. All too frequently they have seen the cycle of initial excitement about organizational standards for project management followed by frustration and disappointment as the standards just don’t stick.
Webinar participants will be provided information on how to:
• Understand the benefits of a PMO
• Determine if your organization is ready for a PMO
• Understand the basic steps of structuring the PMO
• Avoid Common mistakes when developing the PMO
