INTRODUCTION

Many organizations have decided to develop and implement a project or program management office (PMO). The reason is that with many projects running in parallel and with projects becoming more and more critical to the business, a good coordination between the various projects is crucial.

A PMO can be the right body to perform that coordination and to ensure that all projects manage to achieve their intended business benefits within the agreed time and budget.

There are various types of PMOs that can be implemented and part of this program is to determine what form of PMO would be the most suitable.
