    4. 4. Organization Layer Project Layer Skeptical Customers – Business units, division heads, contracting units, and others often don’t see the value of a PMO. Lack of Authority – PMs cannot take swift action to manage projects or implement practices without approval from Project Directors, Sponsors, or Executives. Increasingly Complex Projects – Especially true for IT, as organizations move toward enterprise solutions the level of complexity increases. Conflicting Guidance – To PMs from Sponsors and Project Directors, including competing priorities and inconsistent practices. Austere Budgets – Facing a post-ARRA world, governments face a 24-month lag in recovery. “Matrixed” Resources – Team members on loan, outside the PM’s organization or “chain-of- command”. Multiple Missions – Disparate missions within single organizations leads to funding imbalances, power struggles and lack of results. Project Management “Overhead” – The practice is perceived as a burden. PMs and team forced to do projects over, instead of doing them right at the beginning. 4©2013 Line of Sight

    7. 7. Why Traditional PMO Models Under-Deliver  Not explicit enough-lacking critical details  Internally focused  Little emphasis on value to customers  Lack a strategic focus, linkage to higher level goals  Does not “tell the story” of how the PMO will evolve  Focus on “maturity” leads to unnecessary investments 7©2013 Line of Sight
    8. 8. Key Design Decisions  Accountability: How much authority will the PMO have?  Customers: Who are the champions?  Services: What will the PMO offer and how will they be delivered?  Systems: What systems do we need to be successful?  Value: What will generate near term value for the organization? 8 Begin with the end in mind! ©2013 Line of Sight
