Program & Project Management

Delivering transformation initiatives

Adding value to program & project management

In the complex environment of the Life Sciences, conventional program & project management organizations (PMO) fall short. Lack of approach, content and technological know-how leads to a lack of authority and acceptance. Our Value PMO service secures the successful delivery of transformation initiatives.

Why conventional PMO services fail in complex environments

4 reasons for failure

Many organizations have invested in conventional program and project management organizations (PMO). These organizations often work well for standard projects. However, in a more complex, regulated environment, we have noticed the following patterns:

  1. Lack of approach: PMOs struggle with efficiently combining waterfall and agile approaches in regulated environments.
  2. Lack of content: Many PMOs are only focusing on methodology.
  3. Lack of authority: With a lack of content comes a lack of control.
  4. Lack of acceptance: Complex projects require a different PMO skill set to gain stakeholder acceptance and add value.
