Portfolio Management Offices (PMOs) continue to be a 'hot topic' worldwide and yet evidence paints a poor picture of their effectiveness – only recently it has been reported that, "solid empirical evidence for the positive impact of multi-project PMOs on performance is still lacking." Perhaps not unsurprisingly therefore, many PMOs have a short lifespan.
The root cause of the problem is, in many cases, due to an 'activity' rather than a 'results' or benefits focus. The solution lies in shifting from a PMO with a delivery focus, to a Value Management Office (VMO) where the primary focus is on value and optimizing strategic contribution from the available resources.
The recently published 'Managing Benefits' from APMG-International endorses this approach and provides outline guidance on how this can be achieved. This course takes the next step by providing participants (this is crucial – they are participants not attendees) with practical experience in applying the key skills that underpin a successful VMO – decision-making, analysis, challenge and support.
