There are many facets to properly updating a project schedule including: inputting accurate as built data; reflecting accurate percentages of completion; ensuring that the schedule logic comports with the contractors planned sequence of construction and project requirements and the identification of potential issues. For every update we will:

         Maintain a realistic schedule for management and field planning.
         Ensure that progress shown is accurately depicted in terms of physical progress, costs and resources.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT OFFICE PMO

There is a significant difference between OPM3 and PMO. Organizational Project management focuses more on how decisions would be guided by the organizations existing project governance and to make sure projects meets the organizations strategic goals while Project Management Office (PMO) centralizes and standardized the management of project. The PMO takes several forms

Supportive: A supportive PMO provides the policies, methodologies templates and lessons learned for managing projects within the organization. It typically exercises a low level of control over projects

Controlling: A controlling PMO provides and guidance in the organization on how to manage projects, trains others in project management and project management software, assist with specific project management tools and ensures compliance to the organizations practices. It typically has a moderate level of control over projects

Directive: A directive PMO provides project managers for different projects and is responsible for the results of those projects; all projects, or projects of a certain size, type or influence are managed by this office. A directive PMO has a high level of control over projects.

 

ORGANIZATIONAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT OPM3

Just as we have talked about Project, Program and Portfolio. How are these practices different from organizational project management, or OPM? OPM essentially serve as a guide or driver for these and other organizational practices. It is a framework for keeping the organization as a whole focused on the overall strategy. OPM provides direction of how portfolios, programs and projects, and other organizational work should be prioritized, managed, executed and measured to best achieve the strategic goals.

A key point to understand is that all efforts in the organization, whether they are part of project, program, portfolio, operational work should be guided by and in turn support the organizational strategic goals. These means that any changes to the organizational strategy will necessitate changes to the organizational portfolios, programs, projects both ongoing efforts and future initiatives.
