PMO Deployment, Operation, and Enhancement

PMOs are mandatory for strategic growth.

Organizations continue to be challenged with the consistent application of defined project management processes, resource planning, risk management, quality management, forecasting, and other critical business needs. A well-managed Project Management Office (PMO) can address these challenges in order to ensure successful project delivery. We work with customers who do not have matured processes to deploy and operate a new PMO.

Deploying a New PMO

The first step taken by QuickScale is to deploy PMO is to assess the current environment and develop a deployment roadmap incorporating your organization’s culture and operating practices. We will work with you to identify, prioritize, and establish a set of fundamental PMO functions and services. Deployment includes establishing governance standards, developing the PMO Charter and communications plan, identifying resource needs and performance measures, incorporating the right amount of repeatable delivery processes to fit your culture. PMO plays a vital role in measuring and improving important processes to monitor project (or account) health. Centralized PMO services develop organization wide culture and competence to manage the customers in the optimal way.

Outsourcing PMO

If project management is not a core competency, consider outsourcing the PMO. QuickScale works in partnership with you to understand your goals and establish a structure that will achieve them. We will evaluate what you currently have in place and accordingly customize the framework. Constant communication, incorporating organizational change management, is crucial to the success and is a core tenet of our PMO outsourcing model. All the metrics and critical success parameters are accordingly designed and objectively tracked.

Project Audit & Recovery

QuickScale also engages with customers only for projects audits and expert guidance to draft and process
roadmap leading to success. Common areas of concern we address are as follows:
1) Structured Requirements Capturing
2) Scope Creep Monitoring
3) Resource availability
4) Resource skills and competency upgrade
5) Process Gaps and Project Management
6) Project audit to strengthen organization process
7) Key project data capture for future references
Once the plan is accepted by the organization, our recovery experts will lead the turnaround initiative and engage with the team towards successful project closure
