Implementing and effective PMO to instill much-needed project management discipline in enterprise transformation initiatives an essential requirement for success.
Based on Top5's experience, having generic project management skills - or even a certification - are just the beginning to driving successful programs that realize business cases and deliver high value to the enterprise. Top5 Project managers have the situational experience, combined with deep expertise that generic PMOs usually are not equipped with to drive a program to successful completion.
Top5 delivers PMO services through providing the structure needed to both standardize project management practices and harmonize technology project portfolio management - while addressing blind spots that often occur in process, people and organizational areas that are overlooked by traditional generic IT focused PMOs.
We implement program management, lead the charge, determine appropriate methodologies for repeatable processes, and work to ensure that work-groups and organizations are harmonized and focused on results.
