Programme Support Office (PSO)
Programme or Project Support Offices within medium to large organisations are becoming the "norm" in business. In order to maintain oversight of a vast number of projects, organisations are increasingly creating a centralised Programme Support Office (PSO).
Xelocity deliberately prefer to use the term Programme Support Office (PSO) rather than Project Management Office (PMO). It is important that these offices provide support to the business to achieve predictable benefits. The ownership of the change projects or programme must remain with the business benefit owners (those responsible to recognise and implement key outcomes).
* Establishing a Programme Support Office
* Executing a Programme Support Office.
Programme Support Offices provide a range of services from custodianship of processes, systems, mentoring/coaching, tools and techniques, to the provision of suitable skilled resources for project and programme management.
If you are considering the establishment of, or in the process of establishing a Project or Programme Support Office, Xelocity has appropriate experience in establishing small to large PSOs. If you already have a PSO and wish to increase the value it adds to overall project delivery, Xelocity can review PSO performance and assist in implementing a set of recommendations to improve performance.
Our point of difference is:
* We DON'T drop and go...
* We assess the Programme /Project Management maturity so that the Programme Support Office processes are realistic and achievable
* We engage with the governance structure to maximise the benefits of a Programme Support Office.
In addition to processes and templates to assist with PSO execution, Xelocity has also developed a tool called QPD©. Where appropriate, the tool offers easy entry and encourages quick adoption of consistent processes. Click here for more information.
