WPM 205 - The Project Management Office (PMO)

Course unit(s): 0
The purpose of this course is to give students an appreciation for functioning successfully within and under the auspices of a PMO. The PMO is an integral part of an organization’s strategic management team. In this course, students will examine what it means to work under a PMO and how to manage a PMO, and will navigate through the activities under a PMO’s purview. Specific focus will be on assigning projects; understanding expectations from project managers; analyzing performance metrics to apply effective decision making; recognizing risk to deduce the ratio of impacts; communicating with all levels of the organization for successful project interactions and change management; and extrapolating critical measures to gain project savings. The challenges of program and portfolio management will be explored as well.
