Sustain Your PMO: Nine Easy Lessons

The Lazy Project Manager

As has been already discussed the reality out there in ‘PMO land’ is that there is not a plethora of wise and experienced PMO managers, directors, leaders, heads, etc., and so it is sensible for anyone who is engaged to help an organisation set up a new PMO or advise on improvements to an existing PMO to reach out for some help. The risk to not doing so is to, at the very least, slow the return on investment of the new PMO down. Is the PMO model the right one?

A balanced approach will definitely pay dividends and will not only ensure that the PMO is as effective and efficient as possible but will also aid the acceptance of the PMO by the rest of the organisation.
