OCIO and PMO
Many organizations struggle with linking their business and technology. The business people (marketing, salespersons, managers, etc.) place many requirements on the IT department. The IT department is then required to prioritize these requirements in accordance with the company’s strategy and budget.
In order to manage the IT division effectively, and to meet the needs of employees, management, the board of directors and the stakeholders, organizations must appoint a person to oversee just that. That’s exactly the job of the OCIO and PMO.
Proceed specializes in the establishment of organizational management and control centers and headquarters. Under our guidance, these units support the management of organizations and technology divisions in individual project management and product management up to entire IT divisions.
Our work is tailored in accordance with the actual situation in the field and the organizational DNA, and serves to supports the work of the OCIO, PMO, ePMO, BRM and other functions. We employ a practicable methodology, supportive technology and excellent human capital.
