The AIPMO Foundation level certification course brings the latest in academic research and best practices together into a PMO lifecycle framework. The AIPMO Lifecycle framework describes: how to build a service-oriented PMO that delivers capabilities matched to projects, programs, and portfolios needs; your role(s) in running, monitoring, and controlling a PMO; what exactly is PMO success; what is PMO maturity; and how are factors connected to influence project success.
You will learn:
- To view PMOs in terms of services and the associated supporting capabilities
- How to design and deliver a core set of PMO services
- The personal competencies that enable service delivery
- Key tools and techniques (T&Ts) that enable, support, and extend personal competencies
Insights covered in the course materials are those being collated to form AIPMO’s upcoming AIPMO Body of Knowledge (BoK). The AIPMO BoK will be comprised of several books that each address a particular aspect of the elements of a successful PMO. Course graduates will have a head start in understanding and using the framework of capabilities, linked techniques, and tools.
To stand out as an excellent PMO professional, you need to know what is of greatest value to each unique project. A capability gained from experiencing project’s first-hand knowledge is hugely accelerated by prior explanation of how the complex factors that exist in all organizations affect the projects, their stakeholders, and project controls.
This course both immerses you in the world of PMO service delivery and also in the worlds of project control over product development lifecycles. By using the course’s case study, you will see and practice the implications of your PMO’s actions on project success, team moral, and business results.
The use of the case study makes this course hands-on. Attendees work on the day-to-day operational aspects of PMOs by meeting the challenges to improve the running, monitoring, and controlling of a PMO using PMO Best Practices.
