Establishing a PMO (Project/Program/Portfolio Management Office) is considered to be a best practice approach to improving the value an organization can receive from its project investments.

Why is it then, that a study, conducted in 2005, of 750 organizations worldwide indicated that over 75% of organizations that set up a PMO shut it down within three years because it did not demonstrate any added value?

During this webinar you will learn key reasons why so many PMOs fail, and gain some valuable knowledge of the critical success factors required to ensure the survival of your PMO.

  • What is a PMO
