It’s not every day that PPO gets the opportunity to share our recipe for success for implementing a project portfolio management application and this opportunity was made possible at the PricewaterhouseCooper’s (PwC) Project Management Office (PMO) forum. The PMO forum, sponsored by PwC Advisory, is an interest group under the umbrella of Project Management South Africa (PMSA). It provides an opportunity for PMO Heads and their teams to network with peers across industries and share knowledge and experience.
Sean Woodley, Programme Manager at MMI Holdings and Guy Jelley , CEO of PPO where invited to present a case study on A PMO’s journey to select and implement a fit-for-purpose PMO tool. Varying opinions exist on the right time to implement a tool and the level of sophistication required. The fact remains that processes and tools provide the means by which a PMO can bring value to the organisation and the sooner it does, the better.
PPO and MMI Holdings were thrilled to be part of this exclusive event for PMO managers. At PPO our doors will always be open to share our knowledge and our experiences and we’ll even do it free of charge if you ask nicely.
We’d like to thank Dalene Grobler from PwC in Cape Town who invited us and facilitated the session. Her passion and flair added a sense of excitement to the (sometimes boring) subject of project management.
PPO is an award winning online project portfolio management and collaboration application. We think it’s real useful for project organisations but don’t believe us, check it out yourself at www.go2ppo.com/tryppo .
