The teenage years can be a tough time, whether you are parenting a child or trying to mature a PMO. In both cases, we find insecure and anxious creatures navigating their way through life, trying to make sense of the world and to assert their independence.

Maturity is a journey and PMOs should not try to run before they know how to crawl. However, while there are some well-known organisational project management maturity models, such as CMMi® or P3M3®, there is no model specific to assist PMOs in progressing their maturity.

With a thought-provoking approach, this workshop will introduce
you to the brand new Wellingtone PMO Maturity Assessment
Model, demystify conventional assumptions relating to PMO
maturity, and provide you with tips and hints for
transitioning your PMO from the moody level 2 to the
uncharted land of level 3 and 4, where mature
PMOs live.

Editor's Notes

  • How many of you have teenagers at home?
    Drama, intense, identity crisis, meaning for life
  • I was once a teenager too and I’ve seen PMOs maturing through life
    Demystifying some assumptions about maturity, why do we need a maturity assessment model for PMOs, Wellingtone’s maturity model, 5 tips for you to take-away
  • Whoever gets the 5 right, will receive a free copy of my book!
    There’s hope for you too!
  • Most PMOs fail after 2-3 years
  • Why not simply use the P3M3 or the OPM3?
    PMOs are a lot about projects but much more than just projects.

    Appropriate maturity levels; best-fit practices
  • Governance
    Facilitation of lessons learned
    Project recovery
    Reporting
    Portfolio Prioritization
    Training and Coaching
  • Independent assessment
  • All value enablers
  • understanding of value + delivery of value
  • Too much information is just as dangerous as not enough.
    Remember: what do your stakeholders value?

    High performing PMOs measure their OWN PERFORMANCE!
  • This question is only for the brave: would you recommend the PMO?
    At the end of each service: How happy are you with the service received from the PMO today?
    In real time, live, honest feedback
    Not rarely PMOs are challenged and, most of the time, this is not because they are not adding value, but because they are not communicating that value.

    COMMUNICATION IS YOUR MOST VALUABLE TOOL
