Custom PMO Design & Implementation

The Challenge 

A Top 25 pharmaceutical company approached us with a common problem - one we have seen throughout the industry for years.

  • The projects in their portfolio were vast in number and resources were greatly over-committed. Management lacked transparency, as no one role had insight into all the projects in the portfolio.
  • Additionally, the client’s approach to project management varied across each project and were dependent on the individual project managers. The lead-time to starting a project was long, and trending longer.
  • Everyone was busy and no one had time to address these issues. That’s where Planet Pharma jumped in to help.

The Results 

The talent we placed quickly developed a project management structure that would provide visibility and oversight to the entire portfolio for optimized project selection and resource management.

  • Our contractors inventoried the client’s existing PM processes, measures, quality controls and tools to identify a common set of standard PM practices.
  • Using these standard PM practices, our client can now quickly initiate  and deliver successful projects.
  • Our contractors also implemented a transparent and lean project portfolio governance infrastructure where decision-making aligned with strategic goals. Project status is now reported to key decision-makers, ensuring the successful delivery of the right results.

The Solution 

We used our expertise in three core capability areas to place talented resources that successfully:

  • Customized Project Management Office Design and Implementation based on their needs and organizational maturity
  • Implemented fit-for-purpose standardized project management processes, measures, quality controls, and tools
  • Created lean and transparent project portfolio governance for Senior Management
