What this is

This paper from International Institute for Learning and EPM Solutions takes an executive-level look at the elements of the PMO that can dramatically increase the probability of your organization meeting its goals. It focuses on four major processes: Choosing the right projects via a new kind of strategic planning, permanently linking strategies to projects, managing the project portfolio correctly, and measuring the PMO correctly.


Why it's useful

To enable an organization that executes well to its strategic plan, your Project Management Office (PMO) can make the difference -- IF it is set up to effectively eliminate typical ongoing fights over resources and project priorities. This white paper proposes three root problems for most of these kinds of conflicts, and goes on to propose a different strategic planning approach for PMOs, designed to focus on what executives really care about: the bottom line.
