The Performing Organization Best Practices- Part 4: The PMO: your partner for excellence and a major change champion

The PMO (can stand for Portfolio or Program or Project Management Office, depending on the scope covered and maturity of the organization) has become a fairly common function within organizations over the last 10 years. Five years ago, I covered in another article how a starting PMO could develop a project management culture in organizations with low maturity in this area.

PMO Accord, a collection of guidelines by PMOSIG members from PMI

A team of PMO enthusiasts decided to start writing a collection of best practices linked to PMOs. This collection could not be named a PMI standard because the endeavor is not managed by PMI, even though it is done in the context of the PMI PMO Specific Interest Group. Anyway I joined the team and wrote a draft on project metrics and reporting, which is part of my current job. I am interested to see how far this goes. Another volunteer initiative with the same challenge as OPM3: keeping deadlines with very limited resource availability!
