The establishment of a PMO has become a popular practice among organisations in recent times, however Managing and Supporting PMOs is key to their success.
Growth of projects alongside increased risk and costs are all factors relating to the development of PMOs. These challenges and more have made many organisations move to a project management office to improve how they deliver their projects and programmes. In terms of benefits – a PMO can:
- Provide support and guidance to project managers.
- Give consistency and standardisation around how you manage your projects by implementing a methodology.
- Advise on best practice.
- Help deliver projects on time and within budget.
- Identify and understand the connections between various projects in a programme portfolio.
- Establish a software platform to manage your projects.
