Where a client has a portfolio of assets or a range of capital works projects to be scoped and delivered, a Program Management Office (PMO) can provide an effective way to increase transparency, reporting and consistency and provide the appropriate management framework to provide a successful outcome for the business.
Some typical attributes of a PMO may include:
- providing a common, integrated framework and set of Program/Project management processes;
- translating existing and new capital works strategies and initiatives into discreet related projects;
- reinforcing and upgrading the existing procedures and processes within the organisation; and
- implementing changes in a coordinated manner in order to realise benefits from improved capital works management policies, procedures and processes that would not otherwise be possible.
Other PMO elements may include:
- A Program Charter.
- Stakeholder analysis.
- Communications Plan.
- Development of supporting plans.
- Project & Workstream Briefs.
- Continuing identification of resources.
- Project Management
- Project Directorship
