Office Implementation

This course is designed for organizations who are interested in understanding how to establish a Project Management Office (PMO) within their organization. The Project Management Office is one of the fastest growing concepts in project management today, and often one of the most poorly implemented structures supporting the practice of mature project management within organizations. Effective and value-adding Project Management Offices come in varying shapes and sizes, from simple administrative support offices to full centers of excellence.

It does this by defining and reviewing the potential functions and structures of a Project/Program office, and by describing how to select and establish a viable solution.
