Overview:  In the Project Economy where organizations are becoming more dependent on change and project outcomes, PMOs are in the spotlight.  Historically, our Project Management industry has utilized PMO Maturity models as a guide to building long-lasting successful PMOs.  However, as we all know project success rates have not risen at the pace we all expect.  Following analysis of industry research, years of client engagements, and interviews with PMO leaders from around the world we’ve discovered focusing on Maturity is misguided.  The better option for PMO Leaders is to drive Organizational Capability.  Project processes and requirements are enterprise-wide, yet we’ve only focused on the PMO for outcomes.  Shifting to Organizational Capability requires the organization to operate together, in synch, to deliver the enterprise portfolio. 

In this session we’ll discuss the differences between PMO Maturity and Organizational Capability, How to build and improve Organizational Capability, and Steps you can take immediately to move the needle.  We’ll also have a breakout session with a Case Study scenario to drive home how important this distinction is for Executive Leadership between maturity and capability.
