3 Major Roles of PMO in Projects
LAST UPDATED ON 26TH AUGUST, 2019
There are some roles that PMO in Projects. Project Management Office is an integral part of any organization. They are the department that is saddled with the responsibilities of managing Project Managers in an organization. They also ensure that best practices are been followed when it comes to managing projects in an organization. In this article, I want to look at the three major roles of PMO in Projects.
#1 MAKING RECOMMENDATIONS
One of the roles of PMO in projects is to analyze project situations and make recommendations as regards to project implementation. They are expected to act based on experience and decide on the best course of action to take as regards every situation. Take, for example, an organization that has one tractor and that tractor is needed at two locations at the same time. The PMO has to decide on the allocation of resources in order to achieve project goals.
#2 LEAD KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER
Another major duty of PMO in Projects is to lead knowledge transfer for project managers in any organization. They are expected to train and retrain project managers so that the project manager can apply the same methodology when it comes to managing projects. They are to research on best practices and pass it to all project managers for proper adoption.
#3 TERMINATE PROJECTS
It is also the duty of the PMO to terminate projects as required. It is not every project that has a beginning that must have an end. The PMO is expected to analyze the deliverables of a project and decide whether that project is necessary or not. If the deliverables are no longer required. the PMO is expected to bring such a project to a sudden end. You should also note that PMO can perform other functions as assigned by the management of the organization.
Now your take on this argument.
