Project Manager : Project Manager Aug Sep 2011
8 Project Manager IN DEPTH Gaining Project Managed Organisation (PMO) accreditation was a big moment for OSR, said Mark Geniale, Manager, Enterprise Project Management Office, OSR. The award was so highly regarded that Tony Newbury, Executive Director and Chief Commissioner of State Revenue, personally received the plaque presented by the AIPM NSW Chapter President, Paul Campbell. Geniale told Project Manager magazine that OSR sought accreditation to validate its project management processes against industry best practice. PMO accreditation offered by AIPM recognises organisations that are committed to continually improving their project management capabilities. AIPM commended OSR on its approach to project governance and for establishing an effective enterprise project management office (EPMO). The EPMO provides support to all projects and ensures accountability for delivery of business benefits. This approach is based on PRINCE2 methodology and aims to achieve more with less resources, said Geniale. “ When you’re funded by public money it is important to show we are spending appropriately. Accreditation proves we are working effectively and efficiently. It adds credibility and assurance when putting forward project proposals and funding requests.” Geniale went on to say that accreditation is a valuable recruitment tool. “It says to project managers that we are a good organisation to work for in terms of project delivery. And, of course, it benefits our team by giving credibility to our internal operations.” But there is still much to do before OSR applies for reaccreditation in two years. “The EPMO was only established about a year ago but we’ve progressed in leaps and bounds, added Geniale. “We are focusing on enhancing two important aspects of the current framework, change management and knowledge management.” ••• The Office of State Revenue (OSR) touts the benefits of AIPM accreditation. NOT TOO TAXING ACCREDITATION PROVES WE ARE WORKING EFFECTIVELY AND EFFICIENTLY IT ADDS CREDIBILITY AND ASSURANCE THINKSTOCK
