North America leadership realized they had a problem with the delivery and execution of some of their projects. Although the issue was not widespread, it was clearly effecting client satisfaction. During a month-long analysis effort several large projects were reviewed, a number of clients interviewed, and brainstorming sessions held with many consultants. This process uncovered three deficiencies we thought were critical to our clients' ongoing success: A lack of rigor in the process of project management Absence of a formal means to assess, develop and measure the capability of its project management practitioners.

Why the Sudden Proliferation of Program Management Office (PMO ...
While researching and writing this PMO blog, I have observed that, in the last several years, project-focused organizations have increasingly expanded the use of (or created) Program Management Offices within their organizations.  Historically, the PMO concept first appeared in Information Technology or Information Services organizations, principally because those structures advocated and sponsored more disciplined and consistent/repeatable processes including change management, applications development, and project management processes.  From IT and IS organizations, the PMO then became more widespread in Shared Services ... market research, surveys and trends


billion dollar baby – DC Velocity
The freight management contract signed late last year between the U.S. Department of Defense and Menlo Worldwide Government Services is a big deal in more ways than one. By Steve Geary The late Sen. Everett Dirksen is credited with this unforgettable line: "a billion here and a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking about real money."

Terry Doerscher is their Chief Process Architect and driving force behind the PMO 2.0 initiative, and the chief contributor to Planview's thought leadership. No, I am not getting paid, and no I do not have a Planview system. I ran a PMO that had one and liked it very much, but no kickbacks (yet anyway). On to the survey. The survey was given to over 1000 PMO directors, managers, staff ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

In many cases, it stands for Project Management Office, yet we are seeing examples where it also stands for Portfolio or Program Management Office as well. To get some sense of the "Tower of Babel" of Project Management, if you look at research done by GAPPS, there are something like 4 "buckets" or definitions of "Program Management" and to further illustrate the challenges we face, if you look at Max Wideman's Comparative ...
