Project management practitioners often make the case to business executives that PMOs can play a central role in supporting the organization in its quest to successfully implement strategy and deliver enterprise transformation. This promise has been met with mixed results due in great part to the complexity of launching the PMO, which in itself is a high risk project. The confusion over purpose, process, structure, or even terminology, stems from the lack of agreement as to what the PMO is and what benefits it is intended to achieve.

The initial stages of PMO setup are critical and when practitioners focus too much on the philosophical aspects of the task at hand, executives grow impatient and the organization becomes frustrated by the lack of progress. With these high stakes PMO leaders must create a pragmatic approach that allows them to quickly ramp up capabilities and deliver value to the organization as early as possible.

These challenges formed the foundation for a new “how-to” approach called RapidStartPMO. This approach advocates the establishment of two simultaneous work streams, one for building and the other for operating the PMO. By adopting a “building block” mentality, PMO leaders can enable the PMO to become operational as quickly as possible through a scalable design. The ultimate intent is a pragmatic model as opposed to an “all or nothing” paradigm.

This webinar will provide an overview of the RapidStartPMO concept with an introduction to the model and approach, as well as real life examples from the field.
