“Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don’t interfere as long as the policy you’ve decided upon is being carried out” – Ronald Reagan
We have to know that the level of authority of a PMO determines its ability to influence change management and project management adoption in our organization.
In other words, the less authorized the PMO, the less its influence on change management and project management adoption.
What’s the correlation between levels of authority and different types of PMO functions?
In some organizations, project managers are contracted to or work as consultants for specific projects and they are expected to be up to the standards of the hiring organization; in those organizations that invest in their people, developing employees skill sets is a feature that is looked upon very positively.

Portfolio function is best suited in the authoritative type PMO because it assumes ownership for organization projects selection criteria, priority and resources.
All PMOs are required to build methodology or methodologies based on some industry standards.
A common methodology is important since it provides a consistent method for performing the project work. This, in turn, gives us the possibility to measure and benchmark success and failure effectively and on an objective and shared basis.

Wow – the author completely missed the real “other” model. The strong PMO.
Every example he gave is a weak model. I assume the author has only
worked ion commercial IT. The “other” and much better model is the one
where PMO owns the projects and budgets as well as the PMs and practices
and the functional groups support them. I have spent a long time in
both and can confidentially state the strong model works much better.
BTW go back and look at your history. PM practices were started by DoD,
NASA and the construction industry. All used the strong model. It was
commercial IT that allowed functional managers to ruin that model but
wipe out most best practices. —The strong model is mentioned quite clearly in the PMP material. As well as books from actual PM experts like Kerzner.
