An Approach to PMO

  1. 1. An Approach to PMO Program Management1 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  2. 2. Objectives of presentation  Reply to the following questions:  What is a Program?  What is a Project?  What is an Operation?  Who is Program Management?  Why do we need Program Management?  Which tools does Program Management use?2 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  3. 3. Definition of Programs  According to PMI, a program is a group of projects managed in a coordinated way to obtain benefits not available from managing them individually. Many programs also include elements of ongoing operations.3 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  4. 4. Definition of Projects  Projects are initiated in response to a problem or to take advantage of an opportunity. They are defined as a temporary endeavor that consumes resources, incurs cost and produce deliverables over a finite period of time to achieve a specific goal. Projects come in all shapes and sizes. They can vary in length or complexity, but the above mentioned definition of a project holds true for all of them.4 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  5. 5. Examples of projects  Web and Mobile Applications  Organizational Process Re-Engineering  Relocation Of Facilities & Equipment  Designing A Web Enabled Systems  Developing New or Enhancing Existing Products  Migration from mainframe to a windows-based distributed client-server system5 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  6. 6. Operations  Operation type activities are similar to project activities in that they too produce deliverables, consume resources and incur cost. However they are on-going or repetitive in nature, hence they are not project activities or tasks. Some examples of operation activities are weekly maintenance of databases, paying invoices or help desk operations activities.6 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  7. 7. From my experience  Programs are much larger than projects.  They are made up of many projects and on going activities such as operation type activities.  Programs are similar to projects as they consume resources, incur cost and produce deliverables.  Programs are more complex and include repetitive operation type activities such as maintenance work, facility administration etc. Programs are funded typically on a fiscal year basis.  Projects in general are more time focused than programs.  Tools for planning and managing projects, together with other concepts, can be extended to the development and management of programs.7 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  8. 8. Need of Program Management  Overall co-ordination  Company wide standardization  Improve communication  Monitoring  Management Reporting8 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  9. 9. PMO Objectives  Develop a project tracking application (monitoring, controlling and reporting all project activities)  Time Tracking  Develop Project Management Processes  Training program  Risk Management Process9 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  10. 10.

  11. 11. Risk Management  Risk identification and documentation  Risk evaluation in terms of impact and probability  Risk response planning  Risk response control11 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  12. 12. Time Tracking  Tracks number of hours being spent on a project  Gives visibility on projects being worked on  Identifies which projects are getting the priority needed12 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  13. 13. Reporting  Collecting weekly status reports  Time reporting for managers  Portfolio reporting to project sponsors  Reporting for IT Steering Group13 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  14. 14. Training  Improve performance  Exposure to all areas of knowledge  Incentive14 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  15. 15. Portfolio Management  Portfolio management is managing projects governed by variables influenced by the market, funding, resource and legal requirements. Here, in this context, priority management is very important.15 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
  16. 16. Recommendation  Building a PMO takes time  Recommend to start one step at a time  It requires continuous improvement of project management policies and tools  Relationships with peers at other institutions and organizations and share ideas16 www.brunociano.blogspot.it 2013 Bruno Ciano
