Project Management Office (PMO)
What is the role of a PMO?
- A project management office is a group or department within an organisation or enterprise that defines and maintains standards for project management within the organization.
- The PMO creates processes and standardised templates to ensure the successful delivery of projects in a controlled manner. They are the source of documentation, guidance, and metrics on the practice of project management and execution.
- The PMO is the engine room and the backbone for any Portfolio, Programme, and Project. They ensure that the policies procedures set out at any level (Portfolio, programme, project) are strictly adhered to.
- The PMO colleague provides delivery assurance, ensures compliance with governance, and provides much-needed delivery advisory support to all stakeholders in the office.
PMOs are the nerve center of the programme office set up to provide delivery support to ensure the aims and objectives are achieved.
