Course Overview

Creating a Project Management Office (PMO) is one of the most powerful steps any organisation can take to integrate the processes and tools that enable organisational mastery of project management.  In addition to the tactical benefits a PMO can provide, it can also offer a compelling strategic advantage by helping teams collaborate, create, learn, and harvest the expertise from their projects so that others may re-use it.

Specific actions can be taken to ensure a comprehensive, realistic, appropriate project management support function that adds value, not overhead. This course outlines three steps that address how to define, implement, and manage a PMO as a strategic function within the organization that adds immense value.

As an Authorised Training Partner of the PMI, after completing this course, you will earn 20 PDU hours, which can be used towards maintaining your status with PMI. The breakdown of hours is shown below in the Talent Triangle. You can find more details about our course with the PMI using the course identifier LTFEPMI03.
