Project Management Office (PMO)

A Project Management Office or a PMO is part of an organizational structure that specifies and maintains standards for project management within an organization. The Project Management office facilitates guidance, sharing of resources and introduces economies of repetitions in the implementation of projects.

They are the guardians of the project from gathering information to formulating guidelines for upcoming projects. Not only they monitor but report on active projects and portfolios including progress of top-management to the strategic decision-making process. This video discusses various forms of PMO and their functions and how does it benefit your business to achieve the ultimate corporate goals.
