Resource Management – The Role of the PMO – Paul Major
Resource Management is consistently flagged as one of the most pressing problems facing the PMO today. But what are the real issues? Availability, prioritisation, assignment, utilisation, capacity planning – and which of these are actually the responsibility of the PMO?
In this session we will look at the resource management challenges the project organisation faces, but zero in on where the PMO can really add value to the business, not just administrate, and hence raise the value of the PMO itself.
As well as identifying the essential resource management capabilities needed we will also look at some of the “magic dust” a PMO can add to really drive value and recognition, together with some ideas on how these capabilities can be facilitated by process and technology.
Identify the areas in resource management where a PMO should focus
Describe core resource management capabilities that should be in place
Demonstrate areas where the PMO can really differentiate their services
