PMO Implementation using P3O

What is PMO?

PMO stands for Project or Programme Management Office. It is a department that improves project and programme management by standardizing processes and improving efficiency. PMOs create and maintain project documentation and best practices, track metrics, and offer training. They may also report project progress to executives and stakeholders, help prioritize projects, and ensure all projects support the overall business objectives of the enterprise.

Why Establish PMO?

Organizations need PMO when:

Projects repeatedly finish later than planned or over budget

Projects aren’t properly aligned with business goals

Your stakeholders don’t have visibility into project progress

You don’t have a standardized process for initiating and executing projects

You aren’t able to track project success accurately

Establishing and Improving PMOs using P3O

P3O stands for Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices. P3O framework, by AXELOS, brings together a set of principles, processes and techniques to facilitate effective portfolio, programme and project management through enablement, challenge and support structures.
