This checklist will offer a practical path to follow in order to transition your PMO into the strategic ally that it has the potential to be. We break down the checklist into steps based on 4 different levels from foundation (PMO that has little or no strategic contribution to the organisation) to level 3 (PMO that is consistently involved in the strategic decision making within an organisation). Using this resource as a roadmap to improve your PMO or to asses your own capabilites as a PMO will benefit you with more strategically orientated decisions in the short run, leading to a seat at the table of the c-level executives in the long run. We recommend printing out this guide or keeping it easily accessible as a reference in order to be consistent in tracking your progress and evaluating your level. Check out the overview below for a insight into how you will develop your strategic competencies wit this checklist.
