4-Week PMO Accelerator Program

program and portfolio management

The 4-Week PMO Accelerator Program is an engagement where we come in as an outside voice and assess the current state of your PMO capabilities and work with your PMO Leadership to build an action plan which will transform the PMO into a more strategically aligned and more mature Program and Portfolio Management (PPM) Office. 

The expected measurable outcomes are based upon industry standard ROI (Return on Investment) averages. Moving your PMO maturity from being ranked in the middle 50th percentile to one in the 75th percentile will typically see these results.  The $175K cost savings are based upon an average initiative cost of $1M.  It is important to have a common reference frame for outcomes to understand how these benefits are calculated.  Our approach will produce a high-performing PMO.

4-Week PMO Accelerator Program

We start off the 4 Week engagement by doing a kick-off meeting with the client and then performing the PMO Strategic Analysis and Current State Maturity Assessment.  This assessment will help PMO Leaders with the following:

  • Strategic Planning – Understand how well the PMO function is performing in its current state.
  • Functional Transformation – Support short- and long-term planning by clearly identifying next steps and associated resources.
  • Resource Allocation – Ensure alignment of strategy and resources with market opportunities and business needs.

This PMO Maturity Assessment will be very comprehensive and will measure your Program and Portfolio Management performance across six objectives and 27 discrete functional activities.

Your assessment will be based upon organizational input of the highest priority activities.  Each activity will be given a maturity score based upon a scale between 1 (low) to 5 (high) relative to industry best practices.

You will get an in-depth report which will give you the following:

  • Current Maturity Level for each functional activity and an overall maturity score
  • A detailed analysis determining which activities you prioritize for improvement
  • A path to maturity for each activity linking to specific, actionable insight on how to improve.

In addition to the assessment report, you will also get the following:

  • PMO Transformation Plan – This plan will be based upon the top prioritized items identified in the assessment. Our consultant will work with you and your team to plan together for these prioritized items broken out by short-term and long-term.  We will also take the time to focus on the “one big thing,” so we can get you immediate value and immediate results.
  • PMO Implementation Plan – This is a full PMO implementation plan, and it will be your roadmap taking you from where you are at today to where you want to be in the future. This will be broken into actionable steps with dates and milestones that your team can follow without the need for additional consulting services.
