What Is a Project Management Office?

According to E. E. Aziz writing for the Project Management Institute, a Project Management Office is “your key to strategy execution and results delivery.”

A PMO is an organizational entity, a person or a group of people tasked with maintaining procedures and standards that that ensure all projects are completed within their intended scope, time frame, and budget, while maintaining adherence to the quality standards set forth by the stakeholders.

The concept of the Project Management Office, once only utilized by large companies and organizations, has been gaining in popularity among medium and even smaller businesses.

Establishing a Successful PMO

How does a business or organization establish a successful Project Management Office?
In short, with careful planning and implementation.

Most PMOs fail within three years of being established1. There are many reasons for that, but primarily it comes down to preventable problems in how the office is initially created and structured—problems that lead directly to an erosion in management support and back-sliding into prior less-effective practices.

Should we hire a Project Management Office expert to help us set up our PMO?

Establishing a PMO is one of those things in life that is very hard to do correctly on the first try. You don’t know what you don’t know, and unless you’ve been down the road before, it’s nearly impossible to avoid potholes and wrong turns. We believe hiring a PMO expert consultant is almost always your best move when setting up a project management office.

Hiring a Project Management Office (PMO) expert consultant will enable you to:

  • identify your business or organization’s current state of Project Management
  • identify the level of Project Management which your organization needs to be able to handle
  • work with you to develop the processes, tools, and other assets you will need to be successful
  • test your assets on a real-life project
  • identify the revisions needed to fine-tune your new PMO’s process, tools, and personnel
  • provide follow-up and ongoing coaching and mentoring
