Setting up a Project Management Office (PMO) can appear to be daunting. And let’s not kid anyone. It is. It actually is. It requires careful planning, deliberate relationship building, flawless execution and continuous improvement. Throw in a mix of doubters, “we’re not going to change”-ers, and differing demands, it makes the situation even more challenging.
It could lead to one resorting to endless planning, constant people pleasing, while stitching a roadmap with a shoestring.
Avoid it! Take over the steering wheel. And even if it takes time, this is the first thing you should do.
