Since project management offices began to appear in organizations over the last decade, project management practitioners and their organizations have been asking how to structure project management offices (PMOs) and what functions to assign them. In The Project Management Office (PMO): A Quest For Understanding, authors Brian Hobbs and Monique Aubry address these questions, providing a look at how PMOs exist today, and some clues about how and why they’re changing. Of particular interest to practitioners, the authors address the roles that PMOs play in organizations, which provides valuable insights for better creating, structuring and governing PMOs. When designing a PMO, an organization has a variety of choices regarding the PMO’s structure and role assignment. By providing a way to define PMOs by type, this research explores how to set up and define a PMO, depending upon the specific type of PMO The authors discuss the many bases for the types of PMOs, including structural characteristics and functions, and how these types affect the PMO’s role in the organization.

In 2004, 7-Eleven Inc. created a project management office (PMO), which continues today and with remarkable success. The PMO was initiated in the IT area of 7-Eleven, because more than 50 percent of the IT projects were failing to meet the schedule or budget objectives. Using and evangelizing mission statements, PMO goals, a PMO tag line, PMO objectives, best practices, and metrics were integral contributors to the success of the PMO. The PMO's establishment and associated key leaders were all about value creation--business-driven processes. The PMO was not about textbook answers, although in-depth research and reading were done. Goals included scalability, service excellence, process expertise; PMO creators became change agents and business innovators. In addition to the tactical aspects of building a successful PMO, the organization had to create a strategic culture that supported the PMO and its stakeholders. The success of the IT PMO was so remarkable that 7-Eleven Inc. decided to roll out the process across the entire enterprise. This paper reveals the key steps taken to start the PMO, the top best practices currently being used to keep the PMO vibrant, value based, and application driven. The paper shows how 7-Eleven, Inc. uses great PMO tools, including RACI charts, process swim lanes, metrics, dashboards, and resource reporting to manage its highly successful PMO. Get the insider's view of an effective, thriving PMO in this multi-billion dollar company.

Today, large organizations often deploy PMOs as multiple entities with different mandates, functions, and characteristics. Past research efforts have focused almost exclusively on single PMOs. Governance and Communities of PMOs breaks this mold by means of a report of international research with a multi-disciplinary approach that integrates the foundations of project management with social geography and innovation. This report offers a comprehensive survey and discussion of the theory surrounding multiple PMOs. The authors suggest three paradigms: islands, networks, and communities. The Communities of Practice is the newest and most different of the three paradigms, characterized by opportunities and hurdles in current management contexts.

What is the difference between organizational project management maturity and the project management office (PMO) maturity? How can a PMO evolve and how can we measure this process of evolution? Should a PMO necessarily evolve from an operational level to a strategic level? Several models have been published to measure the maturity of organizations in project management, but little has been said about specific instruments to measure the maturity of a PMO. This paper presents an original model developed especially to assess the maturity of PMOs, grounded on academic research and in the practical work of experienced PMO leaders. More than 300 organizations in 12 countries have already used the proposed model, freely available on the Internet for the worldwide community of PMOs. The paper looks at the operating philosophy of the PMO and the types and functions of PMOs. It also examines the level of maturity of a PMO. Next, the paper discusses the three dimensions of the PMO Maturity Cube®.

It provides case studies of actual adoption and implementation of the balanced scorecard and programme/project management offices.
