Antipatterns to Implement a PMO
To govern 50-500 projects in execution, Project Management Offices should delegate project management to responsible professionals who ensure the success of each project, capable of being accountable, anticipating problems, and proposing and executing corrective actions before it’s too late. Antipatters emerge when the PMO is not designed by a project manager: Organizations fail to achieve the goal of improving project management maturity, convince executives that PMOs are cost centers that don’t add value, discourage stakeholders engagement, and close doors to project professionals. The most common antipatterns in PMO implementation are: 1) the IT specialist, 2) the consultant, 3) the process expert, and 4) the data scientist.
Projects in the Cloud
Most professionals are always connected. Knowledge workers are used to collaborating on objects in the cloud: they alternate their laptop, tablet, or mobile phone, to work concurrently on the same version of the document, spreadsheet, presentation, article, web design, software code, prototype, etc. No need to download, install, send, merging changes, etc. All of them working together on the same version of the truth. In the project economy, it is also time to digitize management, knowledge and interactions between people working on projects, programs, and portfolios.
Is your PMO producing Reports or delivering Value?
Most PMOs are seen as internal cost centers adding bureaucracy to projects. PMPeople helps people collaborate on project management professionally, in the cloud, using different roles. PMOs can distribute many management activities, having more time for anticipating problems and delivering value. With PMPeople, the PMO can grow from being a cost center to lead the company in the Project Economy.
PMPeople: The tool for the Agile PMO
Professional project management applies also to agile projects. For these kind of projects, the corporate PMO should embrace agile principles and minset to respond to change, enhance value-driven delivery, stakeholder engagement, continous improvement, scale agile from projects to products, services, programs, portfolios, etc.
