What does a PMO do?

At CUPE we are sometimes asked by clients, what does a PMO do? A PMO (Project Management Office) is a function within an organisation that aims to enhance and deliver strategies to assist the likelihood of a projects success. Ideally, through meticulous planning, an improved PMO should strive to deliver more high quality work for the same budget originally exerted.

Although PMOs can vary in structure, size and responsibilities, they all have the following in common:

Support - They should provide guidelines for implementation teams and advise project managers of various business units. 

Methodology - The PMO must have a standardized process according to their methodology.

Training -PMO training assists the improvement in skills of project managers and team leaders. This function ensures that the appropriate teams and management is assigned.

Headquarters - The implementation of a PMO allows managers to collaborate easier due to the close knit function.

Internal Consulting - Project managers can give their teams knowledge regarding the best PMO practices.

Software tools - If no PMO software is being used then virtual project management offices cannot be implemented. Using specific software is the key to implementing PMO successfully.

It must also be noted as a co-factor that PMO’s can help an organisation become more cost efficient.
