Added value of a Project Management Office:
According to the “Project and Program Management Survey” of KPMG, organisations without a formal project management completed only 6% of their projects in a timely manner. Be aware that the Cost of Delay (COD) in a particular innovative environment is enormous. Organisations with a structured process completed at least 75% of their projects within the set timeframe.
The objective of a Project Management Office is to provide structure and transparency in a multi-project organisation. A properly organised Project Management Office can also coach projects on project management aspects which lead to greater effectiveness. In addition, a PMO ensures that learning outcomes from project evaluations are widely distributed in the project organisation.
Purpose of the training and results:
Based on the participants’ interaction and a case study, this one-day workshop teaches how the multi-project organisation in the innovative environment is organised effectively and efficiently and how a PMO can play a substantial role in it. A roadmap for a multistage PMO implementation is given during the training. At the end, you will have concrete tools to implement this in your organisation.
The One Day Workshop Managing the Innovation Factory is an intensive workshop designed for R&D and engineering managers who want to lead their multi-project organisation optimally, for managers of (starting) PMO’s and processoriented PMO employees.
