Setting up a PMO at WML

WML (Waterleiding Maatschappij Limburg) is the drinking water producer and supplier for over 550,000 private and over 16,000 business customers in Limburg, the Netherlands. WML's head office is located in Maastricht.

The situation at the client

The projects department, which consists of project managers, PMOs and engineers is responsible for major projects carried out within WML in the context of security of supply. There was a growing need for further development of the projects department. Following on from this is the added value of PMO to the project organization.

The solution from MOJEO

MOJEO came into the picture at WML and played a crucial role in setting up the PMO. The Brownpaper session, a kick-off session organized by MOJEO, served as the starting point for the project.

Together with all stakeholders, including project managers themselves, the tasks and role of PMO are concretized. Using MOJEO building blocks, a plan of action was drawn up and we started working out PMO support project by project.

MOJEO was not only involved in the initial kick-off, but also took responsibility for outlining the PMO's strategy. This involved addressing specific building blocks. Setting up the PMO was approached on a project-by-project basis, with an internal project manager at the helm, supported by Inge as MOJEO's senior project management officer.

To bring current employees into the new way of working within the PMO, WML's internal PMOs have successfully completed the MOJEO PMO Academy.

''MOJEO was not only involved in the initial kick-off, but also took responsibility for outlining the PMO's strategy.''

The added MOJO

The PMO is beginning to take its place firmly within the team of project managers. The implementation of the building blocks from the first phase is in the final stages, with a focus on the effective use of specific templates provided by the PMO to project managers. This will give project managers more time for their core tasks.

About the added value of MOJEO, the Projects Department Head at WML is very clear: "What makes MOJEO's services unique is their in-depth vision and expertise in the field of PMO. The combination of vision, knowledge and experience makes them PMO specialists. ''

The successful partnership between WML and MOJEO aims to achieve an effectively functioning PMO within WML, allowing project managers to focus on their core tasks. MOJEO's vision and specialist approach to PMO contribute to the success of the project.
