Why Read This Report

As the economy continues to recover, firms are looking at how to prepare for growth while maintaining a lean approach. Because of this, project management offices (PMOs) are continually evolving responsibility and focus to prepare for expanding demand and stay relevant. Today's PMOs are moving away from traditional organizations that emphasize a rigid academic approach and toward more-flexible approaches that adapt to changing delivery models. Today's office takes a more strategic, more bare bones approach. With executive support, the new PMO strips away inessentials and takes a less hierarchical approach to projects, embracing communities of practice (CoPs) to develop pragmatic methods that are consistent, measurable, and effective.
