The Purpose Driven PMO: Establish long-term PMO success by aligning your Purpose to Organizational Strategy
We’ve all seen the statistics that the average lifespan of a PMO is between 2-4 years. Why are these PMOs failing? Research points to several factors including Insufficient authority, unclear scope, self-serving rather than supporting, and overly bureaucratic processes and governance. How do we overcome these challenges and build PMOs which provide value and stand the test of time?
Scaling Agile practices beyond software development teams and IT departments is a growing trend, and the Agile Enterprise is a reality rather than a goal. However, the transition from planned approach to Agile is a painful change, and PMO can provide support for Agile rather than be perceived as an archaic team supporting “waterfall”. Once the organisation decides to adopt Agile, the PMO should be the champion of the transformation process, providing support to the Project Managers with less experience with Agile delivery while ensuring that governance requirements are met. This webinar is a summary of the presenter’s experience in organisations transitioning to Agile.
The rise of game-changing technology has spurred a frenzied race for organizations to undertake digital transformation. Project leaders and the project management office (PMO) have a key role to play in this transformation—but only if they’re willing to evolve. Join PMI’s Vasili Lebotesis, Payal Kondisetty and Kelley Hunsberger as they provide highlights from the research conducted in partnership with Accenture, Forbes Insights and Capgemini to learn how organizations are managing the impact of disruptive technologies—and embracing the change that they bring.
You can open numerous books and observe two dozen ways to stand up a PMO. And reviewing PMO maturity model tools will lead you to believe that a more “mature” PMO is better. However, none of these books or tools know your business or your culture, and there is only one PMO that is right for you—and only you can determine what that is!

Project management offices have a largely abysmal record, and are often established in crisis. And organizations are willing to shut them down so quickly, another product of a truth that many don’t acknowledge: Establishing a PMO is a change to the power structure and dynamics of the organization.

Projects come in all shapes and sizes, and no two are the same. This holds for project managers as well in that each of us brings a unique set of skills and qualities to the table.
The vast majority of articles you can find that talk about helping PMOs succeed are not addressing the right audience. If you want your PMO to excel, you have to get people involved who are enablers of that success. And that’s not just the PMO head!
