Strategic initiative to centralize Inside Sales activities requiring PMO support
Established a flexible PMO framework tailored to organizational practice and culture to drive the project management monitoring and control cadence for the geographically dispersed, cross-functional, business transformation project team.
Benefits achieved within two months:
Delivering the right balance between added value PM practice and conducting business as usual accomplished with a four-step strategy that clarified ownership across the complex stakeholder group; established simple, effective cadence; project Risk and Decision Log establishment; and development of Project Dashboard with an exception-based reporting approach.
The investment of the PMO framework reduced the complexity risk from the large number of international stakeholders (external and internal) and potential disruption in business continuity ultimately contributing to fewer delays.
