The Five Basic Outcomes of Project Governance

Today I met Yves Le Roux from CA’s Governence, risk and compliance business. He shared his views on business governance from which inspired me to come up with the following six outcomes of effective project governance for the PMO:

Strategic alignment of projects within the portfolio with business strategy to support organisational objectives

Risk management by executing appropriate measures to manage and mitigate risks and reduce potential impacts on projects and programmes to an acceptable level

Resource management by utilising available resources and skills efficiently and effectively

Performance measurement by measuring, monitoring and reporting on project governance metrics to ensure that organizational objectives are achieved

Value delivery by optimising the project portfolio in support of organisational objectives
