Experts Recommend: Use This Study and Save a Lot of Time, Money and Nerves when Establishing / Optimizing Your PMO!

Are you in the process of establishing your PMO? Or are you already engaged in fine-tuning and optimizing it to make your project management even more powerful? In either case, you will draw considerable benefits from the result of one of the most extensive project management office studies. Why is this? Because we conducted an extensive survey for you, interviewing 588individuals from companies with and without PMO.

The result: The essence consisting of valuable learnings, mistakes to avoid, and absolute criteria for PMO success in 2 separately available parts with top-quality charts, analyses and tips. This will allow you to optimize your existing PMO systematically, or it will point you in the right direction when establishing a new one.

A Must for PMO Managers with Foresight

The smart study design and the survey of companies with and without PMO enabled a 360-degree analysis of priorities.

  • Support in setting priorities: the study provides an excellent overview of the companies’ PMO priorities from which you will benefit greatly.
  • Orientation thanks to an excellent PMO benchmark: the differentiation between top, high and low performers means you will know directly where you are at present and where you should be heading.
  • Realistic assessment due to empirical values: the illustration of the expectations of PMO newcomers and the comparison with reality gives you a feeling for your own expectations.
  • You learn from the top performers: you will prevent frequent mistakes and learn directly how to do it properly because we have condensed the top performers’ experience for you!

If you and your company wish to evolve into a top performer step by step, PMO experts would recommend you to consult this study.
