Project Management Office

A PMO can be a good strategic investment for a medium to large organisation if the purpose is understood by all. It’s main role is to provide a standard set of procedures, policies, training in project methodologies and tools to the discipline of managing projects. The target of any organisation should be to know the value this group can provide to Executive Management, stakeholders, customers and even shareholders. Many folk think they are simply the custodians of best practices, project status reports and personal assistants to project managers. If you need personnel to build your PMO contact us and we can help you.
