Professional Development Events

Dinner Meeting: Feb 02, 2015
Using requirements-based approach to identify the right tools for your PMO
Presenter: Hussain Bandukwala

Registration is closed.

The PMO is continuously evolving and like any organization, its needs grow and change with time. With this flux, it must ensure that its constituents are efficient at informed decision making by providing them with the right tools. These tools must be easily adopted by the organization so that they can deliver their value, and not become a burden on it. Are the best tools in the market the most-appropriate tools for all PMOs? Whether it's a brand new PMO, a PMO in transition or a mature PMO that needs some change, a methodology that considers the following should be adopted to pick (or switch to) the suitable tools: - Objectives for the need of the tools - Current and future PMO processes - Maturity level of PMO constituents - Executive sponsor for the change Instead of picking up any tool in the market, PMOs should use the requirements-based approach to determine its exact needs before the hunt for the tools begins. This also enables the creation of a solid business case to justify the need for the change. Presentation Expectations - Industry landscape - Roadmap for the requirements-based approach (including pre-requisites) - Why this is just not for brand new PMOs? - Easy-to-setup tools and mechanisms to quickly verify requirements - Tips for success in roadmap execution - Case study
