We’ve all seen the statistics that the average lifespan of a PMO is between 2-4 years. Why are these PMOs failing?
Research points to several factors including insufficient authority, unclear scope, self-serving rather than supporting, and overly bureaucratic processes and governance. How do we overcome these challenges and build PMOs which provide value and stand the test of time?
The Purpose Driven PMO addresses factors which lead to failure in traditional PMO by starting with business needs rather than Project Management needs. To implement the Purpose Driven PMO, we utilize the P-M-O Approach of Purpose, Measure and Optimize. The Purpose Driven PMO aligns its Purpose with Executive Leadership, Measures performance to the agreed upon Purpose and establishing a culture of Optimization or Continuous Improvement.
In this presentation, we’ll discuss the Power of Purpose, the P-M-O Approach, and steps organizations can take to immediately see benefits of building the Purpose Driven PMO.
