Visual Control Board for a Strategic PMO
PMOs are an integral part an organization’s strategic plan for implementing improvement, keeping the business running, and directing change. The PMO has a wide range of responsibilities with a diverse set of stakeholders and an ever increasing demand for status.
Thus, many PMOs are transforming into “Strategic PMOs” and assumed the role of defining the, and reporting the status of, the clear line of sight from Strategic Intent to Project Outcomes. 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. It will explore the entire foundation of the PMO purpose and how it provides a single visual of all projects. It will demonstrate a sample of the board as well as the purpose of the PMO as a strategic partner. 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.
