When you mean good reference, are your referring to books and literature or certifications?
if a PMO handbook describes what a specific PMO is doing, it is very specific to that PMO, so there will be a wide range of handbooks.
I would see those topics covered in general:
- purpose of PMO
- authorization and governance for the PMO
- tools / databases
- processes owned, supported
I mean more of reference, books or even samples to have idea about the content
Setting up a PMO IS a strategic project. Therefore, treat it like that.
Start by ensuring you have a charter which reflects the common understanding of senior stakeholders on the purpose and mandate for the PMO.
Thomas and Kiron made valid points.
Check the PMO Global Alliance website. Lots of resources about PMOs.
Thomas and Kiron gave good suggestions.
In terms of books, there is a couple I suggest to read
(1)The PMO Lifecycle Building, Running, and Shutting Down by Dow, William
(2)The Complete Project Management Office Handbook, Third Edition by Gerard M. Hill
(3)Delivering Successful PMOs
How to Design and Deliver the Best Project Management Office for your Business by Peter Taylor
(4) PMO Principles by Roden, Eileen J. Joslin, Robert Müller, Ralf Scott, Lindsay
