A “Program Management Office” (PMO) helps an organization decide which projects it should fund and establishes proven project management procedures and processes. It also ensures that project managers adhere to controls. Management consultants Lia Tjahjana and Paul Dwyer and associate management professor Mohsin Habib discuss the PMO’s benefits and explain why your company might want a PMO and how to establish it. To illustrate PMOs at work, the authors present a case history based on an actual organization and walk readers through the various PMO considerations. Although the presentation is relatively dry, LetsRead recommends this comprehensive guidebook because it carefully spells out what project managers and senior executives need to know about PMOs and how they work.
