As a medium-sized health care organization, Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences used a hybrid PM office model and created a PM network to connect the small, centralized PM office to the decentralized project leaders. The key components to create the PM network were (1) skilled leader, (2) organizational support, (3) infrastructure, and (4) session content. Membership grew from 12 to 45 members within the first year. The network continues to evolve to meet member and organizational needs. Copyright © 2019 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
