APPROACH


The Executive Leadership Team(ELT) requested a review of Project Management, top to bottom.  Did they have the right people?  Were the people being trained properly?  Was the Project Management software worth the cost?  How could Project Management be integrated across the health system and not just within IT?

The organization had been through 3 PMO Leaders over a 3 year period.  The Project Management team had been without consistent leadership and guidance.  The PMO was aligned within the IT Department and reported to the CIO.

 

 The organization did not have;

  1. Enterprise Governance or Executive Steering Committee. 

  2. Resource Management, Demand Management, Financial Management processes.

  3. Active Project Management evaluation and training for the Project Management team.

  4. Consistent use of Project Management Software.

  5. Defined Project Management Methodology.

SUCCESS

 

This was an extremely challenging engagement with a wide scope and a demanding Executive Leadership Team.   

 

We hit all the check boxes and received high praise from the ELT.  Even better, years later the results of our engagement are still being realized.

  1. Implementation of an Enterprise Governing body which prioritizes work and sets Strategic Alignment.

  2. Implementation of an Enterprise PPM tool which has helped to drive consistency and accountability with Resource & Demand Management.

  3. Project Management training program in place for PMs and also for organization resources looking to learn a new skill.

  4. The PMO Leadership Merry-Go-Round has ended and there has been an established leader in place.

  5. Finally, and most importantly, the PMO is providing Value to the business.  They are driving business results and are no longer considered just a cost center.
