The Project Management Office: Benefits, Obstacles and Tips for Success—Online

A Guide to Designing, Establishing and Running a Successful PMO

Is your company considering establishing a project management office (PMO)? Are you unclear about the benefits a PMO can provide? Is there a major obstacle—or are there several major obstacles—standing in the way of you PMO's success? Implementing a Project Management Office can be complex on its own, but ensuring your PMO's success takes a good framework, a great strategy, and an intimate knowledge of the common obstacles and pitfalls commonly encountered during the PMO startup process.

During this 14-hour self-directed course, project managers will begin with a review of the PMO's role within organizations, including a discussion of the types and levels of PMOs. The value proposition and benefits of a PMO are also covered in detail, along with the various steps and tools involved with getting started. And the course concludes with a comprehensive review of the obstacles PMOs face—breaking down issues like communication, measuring PMO value, and gaining buy-in from upper management.
