PMO Deployment, Operation, and Enhancement

Organisations continue to be challenged with the consistent application of defined project management processes, resource planning, forecasting, and other business demands. A well-managed Project Management Office (PMO) can address these challenges in order to ensure successful Portfolio, Program or Project delivery. We work with clients when they need to deploy a new PMO, operate a PMO, or optimise and enhance an existing PMO in order to improve the management of your portfolio.

Deploying a New PMO

The first step Kyanite takes in deploying a PMO is to assess the current environment and develop a deployment roadmap incorporating your organisation’s culture and operating practices. We will work with you to identify, prioritise, 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.

Operating a PMO

If project management is not a core competency, consider outsourcing the PMO. Kyanite works in partnership with you to understand your goals and establish a structure that will achieve them. We will evaluate what you currently have in place and will subsidise as required. Performance measures are established upfront with you, and progress toward established goals is continually evaluated via quality and performance reviews.

Enhancing an Existing PMO

PMOs are constantly being challenged to provide additional value to their organisations. To meet business demands, projects must be completed faster and cheaper and the business looks to the PMO to optimise project resources. Kyanite can assist with this challenge.

To take your PMO to the next level, Kyanite will first review and evaluate your existing PMO structure, and provide recommendations to enhance it. We will develop a transformational roadmap and will collaboratively work with you to implement a deployment plan.
