Creating a project management office (PMO)

by admin on January 18, 2011

Why implement a PMO? A compelling reason is that organisations who implement a PMO deliver more projects on time and on budget and are able to make better decisions about how to allocate their resources. A recent study by Gartner Group discovered that nearly 70% of organisations that have implemented a PMO report that project success rates have improved significantly.

Irrespective of the type of organisation, a PMO can make a significant contribution to project outcomes and business decisions.

In organisations we work with, a common set of reasons are cited as the drivers for setting up a PMO and include excessive rates of project failures, cost reduction, resource issues and management having insufficient information about projects and their status.
