PMO MobilizationSM

Global PMI Partners’ Integration Management Office (IMO) to Project Management Office (PMO) transition services are for companies growing through acquisition and requiring an increased level of corporate maturity.

  • Project delays due to overtasked or unavailable resources
  • Delivery inconsistency and lack of quality control

Optimization Services – Business Workstream Management

Staffing an IMO (Integration Management Office) or CMO (Carve-Out Management Office) can often be difficult due to internal bandwidth or lack of experience. While Global PMI Partners’ process prefers to leverage internal expertise as much as possible, inevitably there are scenarios where additional workstream support is needed to help plan and manage critical workstreams like HR, IT, Communications, Supply Chain, Operations etc. We have a robust bench of experienced experts in a variety of functional disciplines whom we can tap to help, and who can act as a transparent and seamless extension of our client’s internal teams.

Client Challenges:

  • Limited bandwidth for functional leads assigned to a project
  • Business as Usual to be managed while the integration is going on
  • Lack of deep subject matter expertise for specific industries or functional workstreams
  • Limited experience with integration and/or carve-out transactions

Deliverables and Value:

  • Seamless transition to client internal team
  • Prepare a detailed plan for each work stream
  • Keep the activities of each work stream aligned with other work streams and with the overall project
  • Monitor the day by day progress and expedite the solutions of any issues that could arise
  • Transition work to internal resource when appropriate
  • Guarantee an adequate level of quality in the delivery
