After having made all (or most) of the possible adjustments when it comes to making processes more efficient (LEAN) and removed or changed the excessive use of resources, there are still more openings to become more efficient. One such opening is through introducing a Project Management Office (or PMO for short). The basic idea is to have a group or a department monitoring company work processes and projects for performance and making sure that the company learns to collaborate and use best practice from previous processes and projects.
SPECIFIC ISSUES AND KNOWLEDGE NEEDED TO MAKE DECISIONS
- Which tools for efficiency are used today?
- Which ones are worth considering?
- Which ones should be avoided?
- What implications are there to adopting a particular efficiency strategy?
- What are the opportunities and benefits?
- What are the risks and costs?
- Which steps are imperative to the implementation process?
- How does the introduction of a PMO fit into an efficiency strategy?
