Setting up Project Support Offices

Project Support Office Setup for a Regeneration Agency

Case Study

JEMCO was approached by WNDC a Northampton based Regeneration Agency to
Establish a PSO function within their organisation for the control and support of all projects.

A mentoring and coaching programme was established to ensure the staff members within the PSO and the general staff members acting as project team members were able to perform their duties effectively supported by the PSO staff members who also benefited greatly from their own bespoke mentoring and coaching programme.

Another significant part of the assignment was to write the project management handbook for their staff to use as a support tool for running projects.

This part of the assignment also included the creation of all the form templates supporting the processes detailed in the manual. The process was based on PRINCE2 but simplified for use by non project management oriented staff.

The handbook was delivered with all the templates required in record time.

The PSO function was integrated with the recently installed custom Enterprise Project Management system based on MS Project 2003 server and sharepoint.
