An all-in-one guide to new trends and best practices in project management: Program Management Office

Program Management Office (PMO) is the secret weapon employed by Fortune 500 companies to get complex, simultaneous projects completed on time and on budget. Pioneered in the IT industry, PMO eliminates the haphazard nature of running multiple projects by creating a central office responsible for allocating limited resources, setting consistent measures, and monitoring progress. But PMO’s powerful tools and techniques can be used in any industry—construction to finance, health care to education—to enhance efficiency and performance.

The Program Management Office Advantage is the first practical, down-to-earth guide to PMO that anyone—project managers, IT professionals, line managers, and company executives—can quickly understand and implement. This complete, how-to guide covers the entire spectrum of issues and duties, from building a financial case for establishing a PMO to forging consensus about its impact on your organization… from implementing a fail-proof plan to improve project success rates to establishing standard practices that reduce the need to “reinvent the wheel”…from staffing the PMO with highly qualified people to leading it with the skills and knowledge that guarantee success.

It’s all here, in one essential resource to setting up and managing a state-of-the-art PMO that ensures all of your organization’s projects are running in the most efficient and effective manner possible.
