Setting Up A Project Office?

  • Are you struggling to build the full picture?
  • Are you frustrated with the lack of logic in project investment?
  • Templates, Reports, Systems, Frameworks, Methodologies – Do you ever wish it could just be easier?
  • Are you about to commence a large program of work?
  • Are your projects running amok – every man, woman and dog for themselves?
  • Have you been told it will take several months just to set up the project frameworks and systems?

We’ll Have You Up And Running In A Fortnight

“We received both the vision and kick-start our Project Office needed. With the new ways of thinking, our team now collaborates more, our practices are more effective and our processes are more efficient.”

Sarah Dent, PMO Director, Department of Education and Training

Start With The Right Foundations

Too many Project Offices start with a Command and Control focus – i.e. ‘You Must Do…’ 

We’ve found that Project Offices that start with a Command and Control focus have a short shelf-life, and quickly become an organisational nuisance (Red Tape).

We don’t like Red Tape – it’s not how you build offices that last.

We ensure you start with the right foundations for ongoing longevity and maximum impact:

Value and Service

These will be embedded into the very thread of everything your office does.

The Value Continuum shows where you will start with us – with Value & Trust.

How It Works

Phase 0 – Agreement

Phase 1 – Rapid Start

Phase 2 – Ongoing Improvement

Your Growth & Support Plan

Don’t Trek Alone

We have ‘Been There and Done That’ – and have the scars to prove it!

Your Go To PMO partner will typically have 10+ years in the industry, have had oversight over portfolios ranging from the low millions to the billions – and most importantly your GO TO PMO Partner understands what makes a project office valuable – value and service.

You will receive help both strategically (establishing a service map, building portfolios, streamlining governance, etc.), and tactically (what to say to build project manager buy-in, reviewing documents, building stakeholder rapport, etc.).

By the end of the two week intensive you’ll have:

  • your team trained and capable
  • your PMO team structure established
  • portfolio management in place
  • a complete template library
  • your processes & internal services established and commenced
  • team communications plan in place
  • governance and reporting cadence & method established
  • a clear and achievable 6 month improvement & growth roadmap
  • personalised team growth plans in place
  • a firm embedded understanding of what makes a good PMO (and what makes a poor one)
  • oversight and clarity into the tracking metrics (benefit, time, cost, quality, risk) for all your key projects.

Your 3 Month Team Mentoring will include:

  • Unlimited access to your coach/mentor
  • Personal meetings as deemed appropriate
  • Unlimited email
  • Unlimited review of work
  • Unlimited phone calls
