We work with clients when they need to deploy a new PMO, operate a PMO, or optimize and enhance an existing PMO to meet a set of evolving challenges, functions, and services.
Deploying a New PMO
The first step SDV INTERNATIONAL takes in deploying a PMO is to assess the current environment and develop a deployment roadmap incorporating your organization’s culture and operating practices. We work with our clients to identify, prioritize, and establish a set of fundamental PMO functions and services. Deployment includes establishing governance standards, developing the PMO Charter and communications plan, identifying resource needs and performance measures, incorporating the right amount of repeatable delivery processes to fit your culture, and improving the competencies of your staff through training and mentoring. Emphasis is on the PMO providing an organizational entity focused on improving the management of client programs.
Operating a PMO
When project management is not a core competency for our clients, they consider outsourcing the PMO. SDV INTERNATIONAL works in partnership with our clients to understand their goals and establish a structure that will achieve those goals. We evaluate what our clients currently have in place and will complement them. Constant communication, incorporating organizational change management, is a core tenet of a successful PMO. Performance measures are collectively established upfront with our clients, and progress toward established goals is continually evaluated via quality and performance reviews.
Enhancing a PMO
PMOs are consistently being challenged to provide additional value to their organizations. To meet business demands, projects must be completed faster and at lower cost. SDV INTERNATIONAL helps our clients take their PMO to the next level by evaluating existing PMO structure and providing recommendations targeted to enhance it. To do this, we develop a transformational roadmap, identifying areas of opportunity, and work collaboratively with our clients to create an implementation plan for deployment. Common areas of focus for this type of transformation may include enhanced visibility, Project Management competency evaluations, program resource optimization, demand management of both projects and operations, and organizational change facilitation. PMOs offering this level of service govern with a senior management focus on strategic issues and facilitate change across the organization.
