Project Management Office - If you only have a couple projects going on at any one time, you may be able to gain the advantage of organizational standards by providing consistent training and having the handful of project managers following similar processes.
However, the larger your organization gets, and the more projects that are executed at one time, the more difficult it becomes to enforce this organizational consistency, and without this consistency, the full value of implementing a common project management methodology is not reached.
Many organizations have attempted to solve this problem through centralized organizations that are responsible for varying aspects of project management methodologies.
Many companies call these groups a "Project Management Office" or "PMO," but other names include the Project Office, Enterprise Project Office, Project Management Center of Excellence and Project Management Resource Team.
In some companies, the PMO organization contains only one person. In other organizations, the PMO team can be quite large.
Although the concept of the Project Management Office has been around for many years, for many organizations the awareness level was raised because of the recent YR2K problems.
Many companies, especially larger ones, realized that they needed a concerted and coordinated effort to ensure that their systems could withstand the YR2K cutover. The basic infrastructure of a PMO was implemented, although with a single-minded focus on coordinating projects for the YR2K fixes.
After YR2K passed, many companies disbanded the infrastructure, while others realized the long-term value in continuing to coordinate some aspects of project management centrally.
There are many potential products and services that a PMO can be responsible for, depending on the needs of the organization and the vision of the PMO sponsor.
However, before the PMO can be successful, there must be an agreement from the management team on their overall role and the general expectations they need to achieve. A typical PMO is responsible for deploying a consistent project management methodology within the organization, including processes, templates and best practices.
This is not a one-time event, but a broad initiative that could cover a number of years. Some organizations set up a PMO to do much less than that. Some PMOs do that and more.
