Presentation: Creating a Project Management Center of Excellence and the Efficiencies of Optimal Resource Management Across the Organization via an Operational PMO

Abstract: Processes are among the most important assets of any organization. To support Project Management best practices and industry standards, Innovative Development developed a Center of Excellence focused on the PMI (Project Management Institute) standards. The Project Management Center of Excellence and PMO was built to align with Innovative Development’s organizational need for continuous process improvement. Also keeping people at the forefront in the design of the Center of Excellence, there was a need for optimal resource management across the organization.

Innovative Development provides service-based teams to many clients, tailored to meet the client’s needs and demands at any given time; including the ability scale up or down resources. Since many of these service-based teams are alike, Innovative Development’s operational PMO was built to include guidelines designed for internal training and development for members of these similar teams. Providing standard training via ID’s operational PMO allows resources to seamlessly transition from one client team to another.
