About the Value Ring Software

The principles of the PMO VALUE RING methodology are useful, regardless of the use of the software that supports it.

The great advantage of using the PMOVR software is that it gives access to a bench marking database with the collective intelligence of the PMO leaders community, allowing the user to get recommendations on which paths to take in PMO design.

About the Methodology

The PMO VALUE RING methodology is now used by professionals in more than 65 countries. There are hundreds of PMO-CPs in the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia.

The methodology is supported by a database with the collective intelligence of a worldwide community of PMO leaders, from which recommendations are obtained on best practice and solutions to the challenges of PMOs.

More information about the methodology can be found HERE.
