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.

“The PMO enabled us to bring people on board as quickly as we did, minimizing the impact to the business from loss of bookings and missed sales quotas. It drove discipline and cadence for people recruiting thereby accelerating on-boarding; and minimized risk of new role positions not being filled which would have resulted in business impact.”

Benefits achieved within two months:

  • 20% reduction in Senior Project Manager effort
  • 25% reduction in project team effort
  • Internalized PMO practices within 6 months achieving 50% reduction in project schedule, saving <40% of the PMO Framework budget.

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.
