The PMO is a source of PM advice, resources and monitoring & control. It is also seen as a key arbiter of portfolio management, project/program governance and decision-making processes and is often the entity with responsibility for disseminating and embedding an organisation’s PM methodology. Tailwind can provide some or all of these PMO design-solutions according to your specific needs.
Talk to us about how we can design, setup or augment PMO services within your organisation.
Why you need a PMO
A well-aligned and effective PMO plays a critical part in driving successful program and project delivery across an organisation to deliver benefits and ultimately to meet key strategic objectives.
According to PMI’s Pulse of the Profession Study®, conducted in 2015, high-performing organisations focus on process and key to this is having an enterprise-wide PMO, aligned to strategy.
High performing organisations create a culture of Project Management
PMOs provide the framework ...
to ensure that all projects and programs are organised effectively and aligned with the organisation’s strategic objectives. They ensure that the right level of governance, planning, monitoring and control systems are in place, and also provide advice and support at critical times.
This typically includes creating and overseeing a specific, fit-for-purpose governance structure, providing PM resources, reporting, maintaining the standards and processes and being a centre of excellence for project management knowledge and training. In effect, they act as the project management hub, providing both support and assurance in equal measure.
There are many different types of PMO, ranging from enterprise-level PMOs to individual Project Support office functions. All PMO functions, regardless of size, should be defined and tailored to meet the specific needs of your organisation and its projects/programs.
“I worked with Tailwind Project Solutions as the design lead on a high profile project with a strategic client. They worked in a very consultative manner and have an extremely high level of credibility in front of the client as trusted advisors and subject matter experts. Tailwind managed a remote-based global design faculty which involved complex coordination and attention to detail” – Project Management, large global Investment bank
