Private: The Project Management Office (PMO)

Establishing and maintaining a Project Management Office (PMO) is not to run projects but rather to provide a suitable environment that enables project teams to function more effectively. The PMO is one of the fastest growing concepts in project management today, as it is key to effective implementation of project management across the organization.

This programme is designed to:

  • Assist organizations in understanding how best to implement projects by establishing and maintaining a Project Management Office (PMO)
  • Assist participants in understanding the strategic importance that a PMO plays in the achievement of the mission of their organizations
  • Align the strategic PMO with your organization’s business needs
  • Understand the functions that a PMO can carry out and show how it can be set up to effectively and efficiently support these functions
  • Increase the capability of organizations to deliver projects successfully by using appropriate PMO functions
  • How to effectively establish, develop and maintain a PMO into a company’s organization
  • Understand the role of the PMO and why it is advantageous for an organization to have a PMO
  • Measure the effectiveness and efficiency of the PMO within your organization
  • Define the roles and responsibilities of the PMO in assessing the project management maturity level within your organization
  • Create a plan, through the PMO, to increase project management competencies within your organization
  • Develop project management maturity in the organization through an organizational change management plan set up by the PMO
  • Manage and control the performance of programmes and project portfolios
  • Understand the PMO and organizational governance best practices
  • Learn how to establish a generic PMO implementation process

The overall objective at the end of the programme is to assist delegates in assessing the needs of their companies for a PMO and designing the kind of PMO that will be most effective for their companies’ current level of project management maturity and competency. In addition, it will help them to understand what a highly functional PMO is and how to effectively establish, develop and maintain one into a company’s organization while avoiding or minimizing the bureaucracy and resistance to an effective, efficient and flexible process to be applied throughout the company.

  • This programme is designed for senior management, project managers, program/portfolio managers, project management practitioners, PMO staff, directors of project management, functional managers, project team members and those who would like to learn and understand what a good PMO is and how to establish, develop and maintain one
  • It is a must for experienced project managers and senior managers who have recognized the need to obtain the knowledge and approach to plan and implement the appropriate PMO for their organization
Training methodology

The programme will combine conventional teaching with a high level of participation throughout the programme; through the use of programme materials, participants’ “real life” issues and experiences in their organizations for discussions and debate. It includes concepts definition, experiential exercises, practical examples, dialogues and discussions, and case studies.


The programme provides participants with an excellent introduction to the evolution of the PMO, the strategic role a PMO plays in contributing to an organization’s project successes as well as explores PMO functions and examines how such a PMO can be effectively and efficiently established to support project based organizational operations.
