Professional Managers Leadership Initiative

QualityPMO for Organizational Success

The purpose of this project is to create a collaborative partnership between SU, PMI, and PLI to improve the integration of quality in Project Management Offices. By emphasizing people leadership as the primary driver of organizational performance, the project aims to enhance project outcomes through training and quality assurance measures. Furthermore, the project seeks to enhance the People Domain in PMBoK 8, ensuring that it aligns with current industry practices and standards.

Our organization, driven by a commitment to excellence, is embarking on a new partnership project to elevate the quality and performance of our project management office. We recognize the significance of professional managers who possess the necessary skills and expertise to drive successful projects. This initiative aims to empower our project managers to become professional managers, equipped with the strategic mindset and proficiency needed to achieve their goals effectively.

We understand that professional managers must possess a deep understanding of quality integration and project management methodologies. By leveraging existing benchmarks and organizational assets, we can cultivate a culture of synergy within our community of practices and centers of excellence. This partnership will foster the development of a robust methodology that enhances our project management practices.

As we work towards improving our capital assets and infrastructure projects, particularly in construction project management, we have come to realize that our current processes and business support are in place. However, the performance of our people does not consistently meet the desired level of quality we seek. This realization has prompted us to collaborate with Stanford and other DOE complex contractors to identify the root causes of underperformance and human error.

We believe that quality is the common denominator between a client and a service provider, be it an internal or external client. To ensure client satisfaction, service providers must understand the quality metrics, requirements, and expectations set forth. Consequently, we are partnering with Stanford to update the Human Performance Improvement (HPI) Book, creating the Human and Organization Performance (HOP) Handbook. This comprehensive resource will foster a just culture that prioritizes training and support, enabling our employees to perform at their best.

Stanford University & UIT/SLAC PMOs

Stanford University (SU), one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions, promotes human and organizational performance improvement. It is highly desired by clients such as the Department of Energy (DOE) and EFCOG. The PMOs in SLAC and University IT are interested in collecting lessons learned and train their managers using the latest best practices.

Project Management Institute

PMI is the global leader and pioneer in project management process improvement. They have been a resource and benchmark for clients such as DOE to manage complex projects and self-managed organizations. The new Discipline Agile approach is of interest for business agility and lean approach to improve human and organizational performance.

Project Leadership Institute

Stanford University's Project Leadership Institute (PLI) is a successful program that focuses on the People Domain of project management. Owner-type organizations such as DOE are highly interested in the program and send a cohort of 25 project managers from all DOE contractors to enhance their leadership skills and become next-generation professional managers for complex projects.

To thrive in today's dynamic environment, it is crucial to adopt an agile mindset when dealing with new initiatives and projects. While operational functions thrive on routine processes and procedures, new projects demand an agile team capable of navigating uncertainties, complexities, and volatility. To equip our project managers with the necessary skills, we have embraced the Discipline Agile Scrum Master program, complementing the traditional Project Management Professional (PMP) certification and Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) 7th edition.

However, we have identified a gap in people domain knowledge within the new PMBOK 7. To bridge this gap, we propose a collaboration between Stanford as the Sponsor for the Professional Manager Leadership Initiative through its Project Leadership Institute, renowned for its people domain expertise, and PMI, renowned for its process management knowledge. This partnership will empower professional managers, particularly project managers supporting business operations, to deliver Quality Project Outputs and Improved Business Outcomes.

In conclusion, the partnership project between Stanford and PMI represents a powerful synergy that will bolster our organization's commitment to quality and performance. By merging people domain knowledge with robust project management methodologies, we will unlock the full potential of our project managers, leading to better business outcomes and increased client satisfaction. Through this collaboration, we can create a culture of excellence and continuous improvement, propelling us towards success in an ever-evolving landscape through a QualityPMO.
