Project Management Office (PMO) Adoption and Best Practices

March, 2012


Much of the work in IT organizations is project-based, and the project management office (PMO) has emerged as a best practice in formalizing project management disciplines. In this study, we examine the trend toward adoption of PMOs. The study examines the extent to which IT organizations have deployed PMOs and measures the level of an organization’s engagement in the practice. We also look at how adoption of this IT management best practice differs by organization size and sector. Finally, we provide recommendations for monitoring the success of the PMO. (10 pp., 5 figs.)
