The program management office – You need one and you need one now

Every business must tie project deliveries to strategic objectives across their entire enterprise if they want to achieve notions of growth, increased profits, enhanced strategic position and increased organisational effectiveness.

Without a program management office (PMO) to align project goals to business goals and provide a reporting process which gives visibility across the entire enterprise of all project activity, how can your business be confident the right projects are being undertaken? How can there be certainty that strategic goals will be met in terms of business deliverables and strategic risk?
