Official PM Majik Resource
Today, you can benefit from my 25 years experience designing and setting up all sizes of Project Management Office's. From small PMO's focused on a single project all the way up to global PMO's for leading organisations.
Over my career I have had many people ask me to help them design and set-up PMO's.
Unfortunately, I am unable to work on all of the projects at the same time. Then a couple of years ago I had an idea:
"What if I created frameworks, resources and a community to help beginners and experienced PMO and change professionals. Better still make the resources all instantly available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year?"
"What if I could take each person by the virtual hand and, through text and video tutorials, guide them through each of the steps for designing and setting up a practical PMO in as little as 4 weeks?"
"And knowing that if I did create the right resources based on my extensive experience, I could help many more people at a very affordable investment compared to the cost of my time?"
"And that is exactly what I did when I created the PM Majik website and made premium resources available like The PMO Manual"
Unlike many other PMO books, this is not an academic or theoretical book with ideas and concepts that are difficult to understand and implement. It does not assume that you have many years experience and full understanding. It is aimed at people who have been asked to set-up a PMO and want help taking the right steps.
The guide is over 220 pages and contains 25 chapters. The main content is delivered in 3 clear sections:
The objective of this section is to ensure a solid understanding of the concepts and types of PMO as well as the key benefits.
The objective of this section is breakdown each of the important functions that are needed within a PMO.
This provides an understanding on why a particular function is needed as part of a PMO.
This provides the definition of a particular function, sometimes taken from industry standards such as the Project Management Institute (PMI).
This explains the purpose of a particular PMO function or, in better terms “why it is needed”. This is very useful for explaining to project managers or stakeholders why a particular process needs to be followed.
This breaks down the important steps that should be followed when defining and implementing a particular PMO function.
This highlights the tools that will need to be implemented for the PMO function.
This focuses on explaining the ownership between the project manager and PMO. Note: the term project manager is used to generically represent the project. The term PMO is used to generically represent the PMO. In both cases project team members or PMO members could perform the actual work.
This is a summary of all of the key points from the chapter to reinforce the learning.
At the end of each of the chapters is an action plan based on the steps documented under the Approach. This is a useful reference for the steps that need to be taken when implementing a particular PMO function.
This section takes the information from sections 1 and 2 to build a 4 week mobilisation plan for the definition and implementation of an effective PMO.
Chapter 19 provides an overview of the 4 week plan. There is then 4 chapters that provide a checklist of what activities should be performed in week 1, 2,3 and 4, grouped by the functions detailed in section 2.
The final chapter of section 3 provides details of the business as usual activities (BAU) that will take place after the PMO has been set-up.!
How to Design a PMO that Works offers sound advice to help get you going. I have worked in PMO for a number of years and I like the way this explains things - to have another persons view gives me the confidence in what I know and what I am doing - this is ideal if you are just starting out or as a reminder of all the good things a PMO stands for and a check you are covering all the aspects you should.
....although I have read many other books (in English, German, Czech and Polish - thus from various sources and with different approaches), I am sure this one ranks among the best. It is concise, clear cut, comprehensive, practical and really helpful.
When you make the smart choice to become an ESSENTIAL member, you will have instant access to the PMO Manual, your very own "PMO play book".
Section 3 provides a 4 week plan containing all of the important tasks and activities to design and implement the core tools of a PMO.
To help make this even quicker, your membership includes access to the Rapid PMO Membership Pack - the effective way to track progress.
A simple workbook that contains all of the PMO Mobilisation activities in a checklist, organised by each week.
This saves time as you do not have to type out the tasks yourself.
Plus, as it is a concise document you can easily slip it into the back of your notebook or journal.
Then, as each task is completed, simply tick the checkbox!
Many Change Professionals like to make use of the Trello App.
As part of the package, you gain access to a Trello Board that contains separate cards, 1 for each week, with all of the PMO activities.
So no need to enter them into Trello. Simply open the template, click "Create Board" and then you are ready to start making use of the power of Trello to track the progress of your PMO mobilisation.
Note: you will need a Trello account to use the Trello Board template.
Even with the move towards methodologies such as Agile, many people still like and reply on a project plans.
If that is you, then you will be pleased to know the pack also includes a MS Project Template version of the mobilisation activities.
This means that you can download and open the template, add dates, resources, etc. Then track progress within the plan.
Note: You will need MS Project 2016 or higher to use the template (it may work on older versions but it was developed in MS Project 2016).
