Setting up and running your professional Project Management Office (PMO)

A dedicated project management office is crucial to successfully lead an organization through projects of tranformational change. We see ourselves as conduit for communication and knowledge between your project managers, your staff, diverse stakeholders and the executives who make the strategic decisions for your projects.

As head of your PMO we assume responsibility of conception and coordination of professional PMO processes. We also supervise the PMO team that provides project management support functions and administrative assistance to project managers. From the very beginning of the project planning phase we also take into account all affected departments to ensure the necessary prioritization and their commitment in the further development of the project.

If it is desired we also take care of the organisation and management of your external consulting teams in your major projects (skill management, on-/offboarding, office space planning).
