Three Overlooked Attributes of a Successful PMO

Breakout Session by Dr. James Brown

To support the successful implementation of project management many organizations have created Project Management Offices… the PMO as the answer to successful project execution. Unfortunately, a number of PMO’s fail to help the organization deliver on successful project execution for a variety of reasons. This has resulted in the elimination of some PMO’s totally or PMO’s that exist in title only (powerless entities).

Make sure you’re not overlooking the attributes of a successful PMO:

  1. A project management methodology that is flexible and uses a Darwinian approach.
  2. A tool set philosophy that supports instead of supplanting project managers.
  3. The O for Office can be optional.
