Your Project Office provides project office support services to organizations that do not need or want a full-time, in-house Project Management Office (PMO). We deliver outsourcing services that allow companies to do what they do best – focus on their core business. For many small and mid-sized organizations, this relationship helps reduce the burden of delivering projects successfully and provides cost-savings.
Your Project Office partners with you to introduce simple project management practices and then provide independent support, monitoring, and analysis of activities to ensure your projects are delivered successfully through standardized, repeatable practices. Our staff consists of highly seasoned project management professionals who have experience in both managing projects as well as directing Project Management Offices (PMOs). Our goal is to establish relationships across your entire organization to keep key stakeholders informed and action-oriented.
We offer a variety of flexible services so you get exactly what you need at a predictable price.
PMO Assessment Services
Is your project or program management office struggling to effectively meet expectations, or even at risk of being disbanded? Perhaps you are being tasked to extend your support into new areas of the business, expand your scope to include new capabilities, or are simply ready to take your PMO to a higher level of performance. Establishing an objective and well-rounded perspective of your current operation is an essential first step to any PMO improvement initiative.
The insights provided by external assessment professionals pay big dividends when it comes to realizing your PMO objectives. It is difficult, if not impossible to conduct an effective internal self-assessment without injecting biases, politics, or other conflicts and paradigms into the results. Additionally, internal assessments are inherently limited by the level of industry knowledge and expertise that organic resources provide. Such influences can seriously affect conclusions and recommendations, or simply send to your PMO further down the same path instead of in a more effective direction.
The internationally recognized experts at YourProjectOffice conduct PMO assessments and make recommendations that draw from direct experience with literally hundreds of PMOs. We have the insights and expertise to:
Objectively analyze current PMO operations and capabilities relative to business needs
Benchmark your performance compared to industry norms and accepted practices
Provide recommendations to structure a practical roadmap of high-value improvements
Our assessment process employs a holistic approach to ensure we provide a 360-degree perspective of your PMO relative to your environment and organization. This includes a preparatory review of related documents, systems and content; combined with on-site reviews, observations and interviews; and thoughtful analysis on a functional, cultural and operational level.
Preparation is a key element of conducting an effective assessment. We begin by listening – taking the time to first understand your business, objectives, organization and culture. Then we will work with you to craft an overall assessment plan that is personalized to your specific situation, needs and budget.
