If your company has a lot of projects going on, it's a good idea to have a central Project Management Office (PMO) to coordinate project teams and make sure everything gets done properly and on time. Use this checklist initially to assess whether you need a PMO. As projects progress it can also be used to ensure that the PMO is effective.
This template is intended to help the PMO produce its annual business plan. Ultimately, your organization likely has its own template that you need to comply with, but this template is intended to help with the thought process and ensure that all of the key elements have been identified. It is inspired by the article PMO Business Planning.
This six-page PMO Charter template is perfect for a single-program PMO. Using the step-by-step instructions provided, it should take very little time to complete, offer a very clear vision for the PMO and define what will make it successful.
The following interview questions are just a few that can be used to staff PMOs at various levels in an organization, and should be tailored according to the specific PMO’s form and function.
