      Utilizing OPM3 and PMO Tools in Achieving Better Business and Financial Results

      Critique the outcome, and Share the conclusion

    • The Challenge:
      83 interrelated, interdependent projects,
      Aggressive deadline, with short market window,
      Functional staff “Managing Projects” with limited or no PM experience,
      Zero tolerance for mistakes, delays, or problems.
      The Options:

    • Focus on What’s Important…
    • The Challenge:

      Business grew organically from 18 to over 300 in less than 6 months,
      Huge amount of waste, unjustified costs, and suspected embezzlement,
      Centralized decision-making, senior management is a bottle-neck,
      No streamlined operations, and projects running in “Fire-Fighting” Mode.

      Transforming a Stock Exchange
    • Transforming a Stock Exchange
    • One Size Does Not Fit All…
      Conformance, Consistency, Delivery Excellence.
    • The Challenge:
      Focusing on % complete as a reporting tool,
      Senior Management insisting on knowing the details,
      Minister under huge public pressure for delivering,
      Not seeing the value in having a PMO.
      The Resolution:
      Focusing on Bottom Line (what did the result of my project achieve)
      Eliminating % complete from reporting.
      eGovernment Complete?
    • It’s Not What’s Finished, It’s What Isn’t!
      Reporting Progress & Achieving Results
    • The Challenge:
      Local Company competing at international level,
      Creating detailed, yet flexible methodology that maintains the consistency, but allows for suppleness,
      The Options:
      Go Agile!
      Adapt a well-known methodology (i.e. Oracle, Rational…) and customize it
      Controlling the Uncontrollable
    • Controlling the Uncontrollable
    • Managing a Project is Like Playing Chess
      Compliance, Consistency, Predictability, International Standards.
    • Focus on what’s important, and don’t get derailed by the temptation of being everything, to everyone, at all times,
      Learn the Methodology, then choose when to break it
      Reporting should help you see early warning signs, and what needs to be done to achieve results instead of highlighting the achievements.
      Methodology help institutionalize, increase predictability, and enhance business results.
