Of all the New Zealand organisations running PMO's, the vast majority will at some point in time experience misallocation of capital, budget overruns, or hoping they are on track so they end up delivering the outcomes agreed.
Hope is not a strategy.
As we know, running projects can be hard, especially if they are embedded in complex IT or business change programmes.
You might be frustrated with your PMO's performance, or sick of hearing “it’s Agile” so it can get away with more.
I get it.
I've gone through it all myself as a programme guy of 20 years!
Most PMO's have three key challenges that suppress their success:
- Not having the calibre of people needed to drive the PMO as a thought leader, instead of 'Administration Central'.
- Lacking visibility of all project statuses due to poor tooling and technology, or Agile.
- Trying to run the PMO without a proven system of frameworks, tools, and reporting processes in an apples for apples way.
That's why we created the P4M4™ Maturity Assessment - so that you can get an accurate assessment of your organisation's maturity in managing Portfolios, Programmes, Projects and Products, and gain rapid insight into which areas of your organisation and portfolio are negatively impacting project success, with personalised advice on how to improve.
We've helped companies like KiwiRail and Vodafone transform the way they run their PMOs ensuring the right things are being done at the right time and in the right way, turning them into outcome-focused delivery machines.
We've opened this maturity review up to the wider NZ community so that people like you can get access to the knowledge that we've acquired after over 15 years of successful Portfolio, Programme, Project and Product delivery outcomes.
It'll take you 5 minutes to complete, and you'll get insights and actionable tactics to improve your organisation's portfolio management and delivery.
Your PMO should be leading your origination through change. It should be in full flight right now in a post-Covid, remote worker world. It should be the consistency and DNA of change, helping not hindering. Let us know if it’s not.
See you on the other side.
