What is a PMO role?
Simply put, a Project Management Office, PMO for short, is a management structure that standardizes the Project-related governance processes and facilitates the sharing of resources, methodologies, tools, and techniques, a business vertical within the solutions we offer at Allied Global.
We must understand that each project management office is different, but there are three broad categories of PMO organized into two variables: influence and control. Each PMO solution provider will define their services within one of these categories, depending on how much power and control they exert over the projects and their contributors. The three categories are:
- Support: This methodology acts more like a consulting project, it has less to do with direct control and more to do with influence. The support methodology seeks to provide advice to all those involved in the project.
- Control: In this methodology, direct control is used to implement best practices. Through mechanisms to force the fulfillment of their objectives, either directly or through other leaders of the organization.
- Directive: In this methodology, the PMO does not care about the influence of the application of the fulfillment of tasks; instead, they take responsibility for an organization’s project, thus gaining direct control of them.
What are the advantages of working with a PMO?
We know that you can’t guess if the process to be implemented is suitable for the business. The main advantage of working with a PMO is to establish the ideal strategy for your company and the project’s needs.
Thanks to this previously established process and with the solid foundations, companies can build a proactive approach to project management, and project managers can work consistently and safely on assigned tasks.
With the PMO solution, we can help our clients establish best practices, key metrics, documentation, and training needed for project managers within their company. At Allied Global, we like to exemplify the PMO as a base of operations. We are in charge of defining, maintaining, and guaranteeing quality standards in organizations for the companies or organizations to which we provide this service.
How does a PMO work?
