PMO communications and leadership principles must be defined How will changes be communicated How will the decisions related to change be executed? Who keeps the PMO vision in everyone’s mind?

  • If this is the plan for the plan than edit to show just action items planned (first bullet is draft example). If these Charter definitions are known, delete first bullet and report known data.
  • Notes about Methodologies, Risk and Issues Methodologies are defined by the PMO. The PMO also gathers deliverable templates into Knowledge Base. Templates should be made available to all project teams. The best-practices should be used to update the knowledge base. Risks are things that MAY occur during a project. You should define what qualifies as a risk by type (e.g. schedule risk, financial risk, quality risk, etc.); define trigger events and management approach (e.g avoidance, transference, mitigation, acceptance). Monitor risks and if trigger Event occurs, manage as an issue. Issues are happening NOW and need to be assigned, managed, escalated and resolved. Assing one owner, manage, escalate and resolve, track all updates and aged issues.
