A large, national healthcare IT client was experiencing a number of serious challenges with their project management team’s performance and project outcomes. They had a cadre of first-time project managers (PM) who were tasked with leading valuable projects. PM churn was high with new managers cycling through the team every three months. Existing projects were experiencing scope creep as PMs didn’t have enough authority to engage vendors to deliver on time. And, there was a lack of Project Management Office (PMO) standards and structures to ensure consistent systems, training, and knowledge transfer.
SDLC Partners brought rigor, structure, and needed support to ensure that PMs knew the best way to drive project success, as well as the confidence and authority to work with vendors to meet performance targets and deadlines.
Feel free to share this case study with project management and IT project and portfolio leaders who have varied levels of PMs and are looking for effective strategies to standardize their PMO.
