PMO – Pizza Making Operation or Project Management Office?
Not quite, but close! PMO stands for Project Management Office and we recently restructured our team to create our very own! With the growing complexity of projects and accounts we needed a group of people that used a standardized approach to managing projects. We pride ourselves in delivering high-quality work on time – that’s what the PMO is here to do.
Our project managers focus on the triple constraint: cost, scope and timeline.
It’s a fancy name for three commonly used words, but don’t let them fool you, proactively managing these three constraints can make or break a project!
Given the lightning fast pace of change, evolving priorities and the reality of our clients’ businesses, we’re constantly scaling up and down as things shift. Our project managers keep their finger on the pulse of the triple constraint, which allows us to be more flexible, and we make tradeoffs and compromises to keep our eye on the prize: creating positive employee experiences for our clients and their people!
So, how do we do it?
With the help of our friends, of course! Some of our favorite project management tools are Smartsheet for those beautiful color-coded project plans and Trello to help manage day-to-day tasks within a larger, complex project. We also rely heavily on Slack, because it has some amazing integrations that make communicating with each other and sharing information so easy.
If you couldn’t tell, we’re pretty darn excited about our new PMO and can’t wait to see what’s next for us.
