PMXPO 2019: The Right PMO for You
You can open numerous books and observe two dozen ways to stand up a PMO. And reviewing PMO maturity model tools will lead you to believe that a more “mature” PMO is better. However, none of these books or tools know your business or your culture, and there is only one PMO that is right for you—and only you can determine what that is! Your first assignment when determining that you need a PMO is to seek out the answer to a simple question: What problem are we trying to solve? If you can answer that, you have two more questions that must be answered before you can lay out a plan: 1) How did we find ourselves in this situation (indicates obstacles you will face)? and 2) How much change can our culture accept (indicates speed of change)? Answering these three basic questions will help you lay out a strategy for the kind of PMO you want to have—and the steps it will take to get you there.
