According to a study of PMO characteristics conducted by Dr. Brian Hobbs for PMI, the average life expectancy of a PMO just barely exceeds the time to implement it. For a PMO to continue to exist in an organization it must demonstrate value to the organization that is well beyond the cost of its implementation and ongoing operational costs. Programs are not simply a group of related projects, they are temporary organizations that lead transformational change and focus on the delivery of a vision that realizes and sustains added value to the organization (sustained benefits much greater than costs).
Implementing a PMO using program management is a recommended approach for organizational value delivery as well as leading change that accompanies organizational improvement initiatives. This session addresses the practical use of program management to establish a sustainable, value-driven PMO as well the use of organizational project management (OPM) maturity models for improving organizational performance and agility in an ever-changing environment.
