Continuous Improvement of the PMO at BC Hydro: People, Practices and Technology

BC Hydro has a mandate to deliver an approximately $2 billion annual capital plan, to support BC’s economic growth and meet the demands of BC Hydro customers by refurbishing, replacing and building generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure. This presentation will be focused on what has happened at BC Hydro since winning the 2016 PMO of the Year Award. We will look at the impact that this had on the PMO after receiving the award as well as two continuous improvement initiatives the PMO has recently focused on using LEAN principles. The key initiatives that would be highlighted relate to scalability of our single standard practice and the refocusing our monthly schedule progression cycle.
