PMO Training Overview

PMP Course Overview

Learn how to setup and build an effective Project Management Office (PMO) by attending our PMO Setup Training in Dubai.  This executive level course is meant to help the project management team define the best approach and strategy in setting up their Project Management Office (PMO). As there are more than one model and type of PMO’s and many stages that can be attained, it is imperative that the Project team is aware of all the underlying components that make up a successful rollout of a PMO.

In today’s project driven economy, businesses are increasingly struggling to juggle project delivery targets with profit margins. There is increasing pressure to execute efficiently using a limited number of resources. As such, it has become essential to structure the Project Management office (PMO) so that it can become the engine that drives profitable performance for the organization.
