Controlled, transparent and consistent execution is key to an effective Project Management Office
Understanding and defining the way your organization undergoes change is paramount to efficient, predictable, and lasting change. All projects create change. With controlled, transparent and consistent execution, you can ensure each project is delivered on-time, on-budget, and within scope.

Identify and ensure alignment between project delivery and enterprise initiatives
From executives to individual contributors, everyone is more willing to support efforts that directly align with enterprise goals and initiatives. Our team builds checks and balances into your PMO process to ensure projects never lose sight of larger enterprise aspirations.
Project accountability is critical
Having clearly defined roles and responsibilities allows everyone to know which part they play and know when it’s their turn to hold the baton.
Understand the health of all your projects
Knowing where and when action is necessary is a struggle for all project sponsors. Jump in too early and you’re perceived as a micro-manager. Too late and you appear disengaged. Clear, accurate, and consistent project health reporting is key to understanding which bumps are just minor setbacks —and which ones could end in a complete derailment.
Ensure accurate financial modeling
Know what each resource, project, program and the entire portfolio costs by week, by month, by quarter. Be able to forecast out and then compare forecast to actual to see where the model could be refined.
No sponsor = no project
Every project requires an executive-level sponsor. A champion who wants the project to succeed and will fight to make it happen. Often the project manager fills this role, which frequently ends with disastrous results. Project sponsorship is truly critical to achieving support for your initiatives and achieving desired results within your organization.
Make project systems and tools work for you
Systems are deployed to standardize and simplify process. Often project-related systems are deployed only partially, not configured to meet needs, not fully integrated to up and down-stream systems and only trained to a fraction of its users. Even a low-end system can be made to provide substantial value when a holistic deployment approach is used.
Make the smart, cash-neutral investment
Most organizations see immediate return on their investment to optimize their PMO & project delivery. Savings from wasted effort, unnecessary project extensions, and ill-advised scope changes all offset the costs of analysis and consultative services.
- Pick a process standard, introduce discipline, and demand consistency
- Define, justify, and prioritize all projects, then monitor to retain awareness
- Tie project decisions to risk and business value and monitor through the life of the project
