Case Study: ePMO Transformation Program

An Australian State Government Department engaged The Bridge International to review and assess its ePMO function with a view to improve its initiative design capability, speed of execution and quality of embedment to drive sustained uplift in performance.

In order to assess current capabilities, we benchmarked the organisations' ePMO function against best practice methodology including:  The Bridge Program Routines and Governance approach, key accountabilities and capabilities, risk management and governance.
