By centralizing the PMO within your organization, you will align the function to corporate goals and gain a better perspective on resource allocations, financial data, project status communication, and key risk considerations. Management will also have access to enhanced decision support when faced with changes to the enterprise business strategy.
A large energy company was about to embark on a multi-year business transformation program. To support the program, and other enterprise-wide projects, Navigate implemented an Enterprise Program Management Office.
Navigate worked with the client to assess the current project management maturity; define the PMO strategy to fit the organizational needs (e.g., organizational model, scope, charter); design the PMO organizational chart, business processes, tools, templates, and technology needs; develop and deploy change management and training activities to support adoption; and conduct pilot projects to refine and sustain the PMO.
The client benefited from Navigate’s efforts through the alignment to the overall strategic goals of the organization; a “Right fit” design based on targeted requirements derived from a detailed current state assessment; clear expectations of PMO resource roles; ability to test newly implemented tools and templates and address any issues before release; deployment approach aligned with anticipated absorption rate; methods, processes and tools that remain relevant in a changing business landscape; establishment of a core group of self-sufficient project managers; support structure for newly identified methods, processes, and tools.
