Adding Value with a PMO

"A PMO makes sure company procedures, practices and operations go right — on time, on budget and all in the same way. PMOs are there to ensure project and program success, and that’s critical because organizations deliver value through projects and programs.  How they do that depends upon how they’re situated within the organization.” (Brian Weiss, VP, PMI Practitioner Career Development,)
