If you work in a large organization, then chances are better than good that you work on at least one 'virtual team,' possibly more. If you're like most people, you find this 'difficult,' if not almost impossible from time to time. The obstacles to performance are many; they include time zone differences, matrix management, the blurring of the work/life boundary, and cultural differences that are totally hidden until you're ensnared in some conflict that no one really understands.

This implies a method of consistent reporting status to various stakeholders, of extremely diverse projects, to stakeholders with various job functions throughout the organization. This presentation will examine a real example of creating a Visual Control Board for a HealthCare IT PMO.

The presentation will discuss: • Run the Business / Improve the Business Model • Strategic Partner Model • The Importance of a Visual Control Board • Do Our Project Outcomes Impact KPI’s? • Communicating Project Status for entire PMO • PMO Visual Control Chart Example If you want to better understand a PMO’s approach to communicating the health of multiple projects to many stakeholders via a visual control board, then this presentation is for you. This example is for a healthcare organization, but the concept spans all industries and provides important knowledge to help the PMO become a strategic partner with the entire organization.
