Can I ask you something?

I’m sorry to intrude, but I’m curious.

Have you ever stopped and considered how deep the PMO graveyard in your organisation is?

By this I mean, how many attempts have failed over the last 5, even 10 years?

3?

…5?

…More?

The multi-million dollar question is: Are you doing anything different?

Or are you stuck in the governance trap?

…Is your PMO cursed to fail too?

Almost every organisation these days has tried at least once to build a functioning and sustainable Project, Program or Portfolio Management Office …And almost every organisation has failed.

The good news is that I have dug up the skeletons, avoided the zombies, aired out the tombs, outrun the boulders and uncovered the common cause of PMO death.

Want to know what I found?

The PMOs were worthless!

They all failed to create any real value for their internal client base.

But what if I said that you could reverse the trend and be the one who actually achieves it?

Could you be the hero who pulls the sword from the stone and stops the curse?

Could you be the one that builds a Red-Tape Free PMO?

Let this guide be the Merlin to your King Arthur. It contains everything you will need to finally break the cycle (while helping you show everyone else, once again, that you can achieve the impossible).

Not your usual dry and boring PMO guidebook. The words fly off the page and Baker’s easy humour makes this an engaging read. Don’t be mistaken though, the content is spot on. If you want your PMO to succeed, or if you need to refresh it, start by reading this book.

So, You Want to Create a High Value PMO?

Given how often PMOs fail, it can seem as though most PMOs are cursed from the start.

Bucking the trend requires something radically different.
…And someone bold to drive it.

If you think that could be you, then read on.

You are about to embark on quite a journey.

You will laugh.

You may cry.

But most importantly if you do it right, you will genuinely help people. (And, as an added bonus, you will truly prove that you are someone who can make magic happen!).

So, what landed you here?

  • Perhaps you are frustrated with the lack of logic in allocating change investment?
  • Or maybe you are staring at an overwhelming number of reports, systems, frameworks and methodologies?
  • Do your project managers need a capability boost?
  • Or is it that the information you need just isn’t there?
  • Maybe you are about to commence a large program of work?
  • Or is it just chaos – and your projects are running amok.

No matter the reason you are here, I’ve got some great news. This guide will help.

This guide is for you if you have just been tasked with setting up a new PMO, and you want to do it right.
Equally, this guide is for you if your office is well established but you just aren’t getting the results you expected.
In short – this guide is for you if you need to create entirely new levels of value through your PMO.

But why should you listen to me?

Simple.

I’ve made the mistakes, delved into why others failed, and using those learnings I’ve driven consistent success across over $10 Billion in transformational projects and programs across a range of industries. This has included public infrastructure, business/cultural transformations, whole of government initiatives, shared service implementations, restructures, privatisations & sales, process overhauls, technology deployments, social policy and more.

More importantly for you, I’ve built and coached Project, Program and Portfolio Offices of all sizes. From organisation-wide behemoths through to offices that consist of just one person, I’ve helped them create new value.

I’ve learned what works (and what doesn’t), and here in this guide, I decode those years of experience into what you must know to create a truly High Value PMO.

The High Value PMO Difference

Too many Project Offices start with a Command and Control focus – i.e. ‘You Must Do…’ 

We’ve found that PMOs with a command and control, assurance-based focus have a short shelf-life. They quickly find themselves an organisational nuisance and are ultimately put down.

This guide will ensure you build the right foundations for ongoing longevity and maximum impact:

Value and Service

These will be embedded into the very thread of everything your office does.
