What is the Project Management Office (PMO)?
Aston’s Project Management Office (PMO) has been set up to support the delivery of improvement programmes and projects across the University.
What does the PMO do?
The PMO is relevant to you whether you are a staff member with an idea, a team leader or a member of the University Executive and we can provide support by:
- Creating and maintaining University project management standards and ensure that these are applied consistently across the University, including for initiatives not within the PMO’s remit.
- Working with you to review your processes, identify areas for improvement or support you developing a project business case. In addition, we can also provide project management resources for the delivery of improvement initiatives. The scale of the initiative will determine the level of support available, with large University projects being led by the PMO.
- Providing assurance to the Executive on the effective and efficient management of improvement programmes and projects. This will be through regular updates and the Project Delivery Board.
- Acting as a challenger and critical friend for initiatives.
The PMO developed a suite of project management standards and templates to promote better and more consistent project management practice across the University. In addition, in order to ensure effective governance of the delivery of projects, an Improvement Delivery Board has been established.
