    Can an IT “Outsourcer” have an Optimal PMO?

    Miheer's first book is targeted for release in December 2014. Information is said to be power and it is for this reason that Mr Shah has decided to write his first book, “What is an Optimal PMO for the Healthcare IT Outsourcer?” Some people may categorize this book under humour but for real, it is a serious management book that is a must read by everyone interested in management.

    Mr Shah is a Director of PMO for a very large corporation. He uses best practice PMI Program and Project Management methodology coupled with Six Sigma to solve process, and IT, problems to successfully deliver mid to large scale Healthcare IT programs and projects faster, with increased bottom-line savings.

    The storyline of the book is about a fictional humorous character, a highly observant over-qualified over-worked mid-level manager that "no one ever sees or recognizes" when he enters a room. He works in a newly formed PMO of a Healthcare IT division, which is continuously being re-invented and reformed for years, and where everything is always behind schedule and looking calamitous “I work for a new PMO - that is new - every nine months or so." The story gives insight into the day-to-day life of a PMO manager and challenges common corporate business practices and thought processes. In a similar vein as Dr Eliyahu Goldratt's "The Goal", a parallel storyline depicts the family and other problems faced by the main character, highlighting the difficulties faced by managers, especially the workaholics, in their personal lives.

    Therefore if your company needs PMO consultation, Mr Shah is the best at pinpointing the pain addressing which will have the greatest positive impact on your efforts. His book which is much about what not to do if you want to create a strong flexible best in class PMO, as it is to do with how to use PMI recommended methods and processes to create a world-class PMO, is a reliable source for more resources.

    If you have an interest of wanting your writing on the same topic to be published in this new book, you are invited. Contact Miheer Shah for the way forward.
