How to set-up a PMO with little or no experience

  • Do you need to design & set-up a PMO but don't know where to start?
  • Do you have limited time but need results?
  • Is this the first PMO you have set-up?
  • Do you want an easy to understand guide with practical action plans?

If you answered YES to any (or all of the questions), then this message is just for you.

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.

How I can help solve your problem to set-up a PMO

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"

Each chapter follows the same format covering:

  • Context
  • Definition
  • Purpose
  • Approach
  • Tools
  • Responsibilities
  • Tools
  • Responsibilities
  • Context

    This provides an understanding on why a particular function is needed as part of a PMO.

  • Definition

    This provides the definition of a particular function, sometimes taken from industry standards such as the Project Management Institute (PMI).

  • Purpose

    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.

  • Approach

    This breaks down the important steps that should be followed when defining and implementing a particular PMO function.

  • Tools

    This highlights the tools that will need to be implemented for the PMO function.

  • Ownership

    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.

  • Key Points

    This is a summary of all of the key points from the chapter to reinforce the learning.

  • Action Plan

    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.

How would you like to have your PMO up and running in 4 weeks?

Section 3 - 4 Week Action Plan

This section takes the information from sections 1 and 2 to build a 4 week mobilisation plan for the definition and implementation of a 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.!

....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.
