As many agencies are involved in a project of setting up an integrated steel plant what should be the right approach to start a Project Management Office in steel industry.

For the projects in the steel industry or any construction related project setting up of PMO is very much important for success of the project. PMO must be involving all the stakeholders and must be present in the project site to facilitate the project and clearing any hindrances , issues and constraints with out any delay where time is of essence.

I would guess it's like any other industry, but with industry specific knowledge, like PM's with engineering degrees for example.

As in any other type of industries (by the way I did that in the steel industry). Strategy is the way organizations answer environmental stimuli. Way to answer are functions and process. Then organizations have to define if project/portfolio/program process have to be in place to answer environmental stimuli. After that they have to define if those functions will be located into a physical business unit or not. Just in case they will be located into a physical business unit a PMO or any other name must be created. That´s all you need to take into account.

I did that in one of the biggest steel companies in the world but I am not working as a consultant right now. I do not know about a company. If you ask me, you do not need that. The point is: how much you or somebody inside your company know about project management. If there is no experience inside your company creating a PMO will add problems instead of solutions. (Please, I am writting this in the best english I can. I do not want to be rude. I tried to be honest with you).

Thank you for your prompt and frank opinion about the subject matter.

I am sure it will help me in future endeavors. I have understood that internal system has to be strengthen with more managers have good knowledge of PM before the PMO with the help of an external agency may be implemented.

I hope it clears the inhibition.

You are welcome. If you need some help my recommendation is posting here your doubts or send a message to me. The first option is better because you will receive answers for people that deserves attention due to, in fact, I learn a lot from their comments.
