From the Inside Flap:

Are the project managers in your organization scrambling for people, time, and funding? Are they wasting effort on overlapping projects—or the wrong projects altogether? Maybe your organization is plagued by cost overruns, delays, and cancellations? Program Management Office (PMO) is the newest solution to the challenge of how to effectively manage complex, concurrent projects.

As a single office responsible for overseeing all of an organization’s projects, PMO goes well beyond the traditional scope of project management, adding a new level of efficiency, accountability, and strategic oversight. Now you can put the enormous benefits of PMO to work in your organization with the strategies and tools in The Program Management Office Advantage. This all-in-one resource helps you:

· Evaluate the pros and cons of establishing PMO in your organization, and prepare a cost-benefit analysis to justify your decision.

· Set up a world-class PMO from scratch, overcoming resistance from internal project managers and outside vendors.

· Determine where to locate the PMO in your organization’s structure for optimal interaction.

· Build a customer-centric approach to helping your project teams achieve their goals.

· Set detailed guidelines for managing vendors and contractors, and maintain a database of pertinent information on each.

· Implement a five-step knowledge-harvesting process to ensure that all project documentation is collected and stored.

· Train your project managers in PMO best practices to continually improve your organization’s performance.

· Select the projects that best serve your company’s goals and align with its strategy.

· Use a gateway review at each stage of a project to ensure that results are delivered, budgets are approved, and resources are available.

From quickly getting projects off the ground to consistently measuring results to successfully leading the department, The Program Management Office Advantage gives you the latest, most effective PMO strategies and tools—in an easy-to-understand format that lets you put the information to work immediately.
