  23. 23. Never start here! Process meets services and talent, not the other way around Avoid heavy customization of tools and process – streamline!

Do not measure everything just because you can! Tie metrics directly to WHY the PMO exists (in business terms) MEASURE IMPACT How to Setup a High-IMPACT PMO
  31. 31. NO. 9 How to Setup a High-IMPACT PMO How will you adapt?
  32. 32. Shift focus/services as organization needs shift – must be agile!
