“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.
Project Manager Career Path
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.
