Evoke Program Management Office

A Program Management Office (PMO) is tied to numerous organizational management functions. However, an Evoke PMO goes beyond simple organizational ties or programmatic support functions and gains actual efficiencies by creating insight into program and project operations. The establishment of this more evolved Program Management Office is invaluable for improved processes, efficiencies, and tangible cost savings and cost avoidance.

An Evolved Evoke PMO offers:

  • Clarity of information to senior leadership for decision-making (may include Performance Management and Dashboard reporting)
  • Defined and repeatable critical processes
  • Return on Investment; improved positioning for obtaining needed resources
  • Integration across core service offerings or business areas
  • Improved management across individual projects, programs, and portfolios (project, programs, and portfolios via customized performance measures)
  • Improved communications within and across business units via collaboration, knowledge management, and sharing of best practices

An evolved Evoke PMO is anchored by Subject Matter Experts with experience driving client operations towards process improvement and financial efficiency. Evoke will provide tangible solutions that improve your organization, through cost savings and significant process improvement that can be measured.

The PMO will guide the best use of resources and determine which applications and projects should be built, eliminated, maintained, or enhanced, and in what sequence by:

  • Aligning strategies and plans to organizational goals and objectives
  • Examining the quality, cost, and business value of projects

The PMO will set a standard for successful execution of projects throughout the organization by providing a framework for improving project management practices by consistent application of proven methodologies, in-depth process knowledge, and monitoring methods. The PMO will also ensure complete, consistent, and ongoing external compliance requirements.
