David M. Sides, PMP, Vice President -
Sogeti USA, LLC will be discussing Sogeti's model of best practices for
the design and implementation of Project Management Offices called the
'5x5 Approach'. This set of best practices identifies five specific

Business Management, Methods Management, Risk Management and Resource Management.
There are 25 specific best practices identified in the seminar that can

This discussion will also provide examples
of how PMO successes are achieved, the attributes of value-enhancing PMOs,
and how to address the gap between your PMO today and where it could be

Are you looking to improve the benefits of
your Program Management Office (PMO)?
What business benefits are achievable through
more effective project management?
What can you do to get better results with
the same people and budget?
How can EPM tools, such as Microsoft Project
Server enable the implementation and operation of all 25 initiatives?
Enhancing PMO effectiveness will help you
to reduce business risk related to projects, focus efforts on valid requirements
and stop 'scope-creep', and identify deficiencies in your current project
management approach. It will also improve credibility in the eyes
of your customers, utilize resources more efficiently, create a positive
culture around project management, and enable your organization to capture
best practices and promote a learning environment.
