THE EFFECT OF A PROJECT MANAGEMENT OFFICE ON PROJECT AND ORGANIZATIONAL PERFORMANCE: A CASE STUDY
Jaco van der Linde and Herman Steyn
Depending on the specific needs of the host companies, Project Management Offices (PMOs) are created and mandated for different reasons. As a result of varying mandates and functions of PMOs, there is no agreed upon method to determine the value of a PMO. By studying a case of an organization that recently implemented a PMO, this paper provides some insight on ways to determine the value of a PMO. Three new methods of determining the value of PMO are proposed.
Key words: Project Office, Project Management Office, PMO, Project Portfolio Management Office.
