The first 100 days for any leader entering office marks a major milestone. He/she is judged on the performance during that period and the opinion set during that time persists throughout his/her tenure. As a PMO leader, you should take this standard upon yourself. This will most likely not be set as an expectation by your stakeholders, but this plan of action will be largely appreciated by them.

The Biggest Mistake PMO Leaders Make

by Andy Jordan

If PMOs continue to focus on drawing attention to themselves to demonstrate value by collecting, consolidating and regurgitating various project metrics, they will never make a difference. PMO leaders are too focused on what they are and what they need, not what they do for others—and certainly not what they enable to happen.

Where Do We Go From Here With PMOs?

by Mark Mullaly, Ph.D., PMP

For every shining exemplar of a PMO, there are dozens—if not hundreds—of failed examples fallen by the wayside. This is not a good look. PMOs often start in crisis as a desperate response to a situation gone sideways, and sincere questions about their value emerge once the crisis resolves (or endures).

Topic Teasers Vol. 147: Getting the PMO To Listen!

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: With all of the recent changes in project management, our PMO (Project Management Office) needs to update itself. I think those ideas for new ways of working must come from the project managers, but I can’t seem to get the PMO to listen to me. Is there a clever way to present my ideas, based on my experience delivering products and services for this company, so that the PMO might actually update its practices?

Integrated and Aligned PMOs—The Difference Maker?

by Andy Jordan

If leadership isn’t asking PMOs to concentrate on enabling value, then there will be less understanding of how—or if—value is being achieved because no one is looking for it. To make a difference to their organization, PMOs need to focus on things that matter.

The Difficult Relationship Between PMOs and Spreadsheets

by Andy Jordan

When spreadsheets are used in your PMO, they are dangerous in the extreme because they give stakeholders a false sense of security.

The Proof That PMOs Can Deliver Value

by Andy Jordan

The problem that many PMOs face is that their organizations don’t know what PMO excellence looks like, so they aren’t quite sure what the PMO’s mandate and objectives should be. But a new report shows just what PMOs can achieve—in dramatic fashion.

Gold Medal-Winning PMOs

by Andy Jordan

Why don’t we talk more about the commitment PMO leaders make to excellence, or celebrate the remarkable achievements of a particular PMO? What does it take to create world-class PMOs, and why do so few try to get there?

The PMO of the Future

by Andy Jordan

If we could time travel 10 years into the future, what would we find in the world of PMOs? Today’s PMO models aren't sustainable in a project-delivery environment that is evolving as fast as it is. That’s why we’re already seeing the evolution of PMOs into more strategic, value-focused functions.

PMO Maturity: Lessons from the Global Top Tier

by PMI

Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s leading authority on project management, and global professional services firm, PwC, have teamed up to address the current state of project management office (PMO) maturity through the creation of a bespoke PMO maturity index. While the global maturity index score shows there is still a long way to go for PMOs on their maturity journey, it has identified a cohort of 230 PMOs—called the “Top 10 Percent” in this report—which are leaders across all dimensions of the index.

The Need for Integrated Project Delivery

by Andy Jordan

As projects become ever more important elements in how an organization succeeds, so the ability to integrate every element of project delivery becomes more critical. To enable the biggest improvement, PMOs need to focus on some of the weaker links in that chain.
