The deployment of a methodology is not a one-time effort. Once you have a process and artifacts developed, they must be deployed. Different methods can be used to deploy new processes and standards within an organization. Some examples are classroom training, workshops, and lunchtime learning sessions. We highly recommend coaches to work alongside Project and Program Managers in a group setting, or on a one-to-one basis, to ensure that the methodology is properly put into practice.
Outsourced Project Management Office option
If project management is not a core competency in your business, consider outsourcing the Project Management Office (PMO). CoLAB PS will partner with you to understand your goals and establish a structure and process with which they can be achieved. We will evaluate what you currently have in place and will supplement these as required.
Managed Project Office option
Or, if you prefer, you can utilize our Managed Project Office (MPO), a customizable toolkit of proven techniques and methodologies. Constant communication, incorporating organizational change management, is crucial to the success of projects, and is a core tenet of our MPO operating model. Performance measures are collectively established upfront with you, and progress toward established goals is continually evaluated through quality and performance reviews.
