The PMO Value Ring© methodology results from a 7-year research project developed by the PMO Global Alliance in collaboration with 122 seasoned PMO leaders from different countries.

The methodology provides a structured step-by-step to set up new PMOs or assess and redesign existing PMOs. Its optional web tool automates the methodology and provides access to a powerful database with the collective intelligence and experience of the global PMO community.

The PMO Global Alliance Certification Program is grounded in the PMO Value Ring® methodology and counts on 5,000+ PMO-CP, PMO Certified Practitioner credential holders around the world.

The Mindset Behind the Methodology

One Size doesn't Fit All: Forget pre-established PMO models and focus on creating a flexible PMO that fully fits your organization's needs. PMOs are Service Providers: PMOs exist to serve their clients, meeting expectations, and delivering expected benefits. PMOs must deserve Sponsorship: Lack of sponsorship is usually not the cause but the consequence of the failure of many PMOs. Adaptation is a Key to Survival: Be ready to rethink and reconfigure your PMO any time a significant organizational change arises. It's All About Value: Generate value perception for the PMO stakeholders, it's the most effective way to make the PMO thrive.
