Today’s dynamic business environment demands the ability to execute projects well. From new product or service introductions to complex IT installations, the ability to deliver consistent and predictable project outcomes is considered a distinct competitive advantage.
In an effort to improve project management capability from within, many progressive organizations have embraced the concept of a Project Management Office (PMO). The PMO takes responsibility for all projects within an organization encompassing ongoing development of project management as a discipline, project portfolio management as well as strategic project services.
Appropriately designed and resourced to fit with project needs, organizational structure and corporate culture, the PMO can play a major role in ensuring greater alignment between business strategy and project selection and drives continuous improvement in project management practices within the company.
