CIPC has been part of the organizational development for several companies in the region
National TalentS Company - KSA
National Talents in Saudi Arabia are the leading exhibits and museum creators in Saudi Arabia, and among the best in the world. They have a profound mission which is to “make learning meaningful.”
National Talents had an existing PMO, and it was adding value already. They decided they want more.
With the help of Case In Point a PMO improvement plan was built one that focused on building capacity. Not on tool, or process only. But on building the human capital. Talents was already there. Winning. And they chose to do even better and they did. And they continue to do so.
Talents today is ready and confident enough to sell PMO services. Not only build their PMO. They are a getting closer by the day to become a “Center of Excellence” on project execution.
How we did it:
We started by focusing on the human capital. On engaging people in the improvement initiative. That required a clear vision and goals for the PMO this was achieved using the new OKR methodology of measuring success. Then we started building the capacity one month at a time in a non disruptive manner. We put together a monthly improvement plan for one year. One clear and profound improvement a month, that clearly was a value adding step for everybody and for the company.
Then CCIPC lead the execution of the plan using full engagement with the client staff. And on a monthly basis provide direction and support to help steer the team towards that improvement and the goal set for the month.
We also introduced Agile methodology not only from a technical perspective but also from a business perspective. This made Project Management less disruptive and more of a team game rather than a rigid methodology game. They were all practical simple tweeks that allowed Talents to stay nimble and yet deliver and build accountability across departments and hierarchy.
