Project Management Office - Bureaucracy or Benefit?
The primary responsibility of the Project Management Office (PMO) is to manage and execute projects that are central to the goals and objectives of the organization. The PMO works with the project stakeholders and delivery teams to apply and maintain standards and processes as they deliver a project. Can you imagine not having standards or oversight when implementing a project? Unfortunately, PMOs are frequently seen as bureaucratic functions that block, rather than benefit organizations. This paper examines common challenges and potential solutions to unlock the benefit of a PMO.
