About this Webinar
Business Improvement Architects undertook an extensive research study to find out how Project Management and Project Management Offices can improve the overall effectiveness of their organizations, what strategies they can undertake to realize this goal and what may be stopping them from succeeding. This Webinar presentation will reveal the significant findings from the study.
With global economic pressures looming over the world, most private and public sector management are seriously pondering how to manage the impact of outside forces on their business results. It isn't surprising that many organizations, even those that may be economically healthy, are seriously considering whether or not to cut fixed spending on projects. Others are wondering whether or not their project management offices, often seen as non-revenue generating departments, should be eliminated.
Project Management Offices (PMOs) can provide important benefits to an organization by ensuring that projects are successfully and efficiently implemented. They can contribute to the overall effectiveness of the organization. Yet they are terrible at marketing this to their organizations and ensuring that the positive impact of well-managed projects is understood.
This global research study included over 100 in-depth interviews with CEOs, Senior Executives and PMO staff which were supplemented with over 850 comprehensive on-line surveys. They included various sizes of organizations from both the private sector and public sector.
Recently released, "How a Project Management Office Can Improve Organizational Effectiveness" the research report provides valuable insights about how successful PMOs and Project Managers are contributing to their organization's bottom lines despite current economics and what best practices they are applying to achieve this end. The report also explores the changes from the last study, released in 2005; "From Crisis to Control, a New Era in Strategic Project Management."
