In today’s fast paced business environment, it’s crucial to be able to keep up. Status quo processes and business results won’t cut it. The PMO has been at the center of the business for years, but as the role of the PMO changes the needs of the business are also changing and organizations need to adapt.
However, when asked what’s stopping the PMO from improving survey respondents cited some surprising results. As we look at responses, 34% say reluctance to commit money and energy, 23% say reluctance to give up legacy functions, 28% saying there’s a lack of understanding of the need for the PMO, and 15% no executie support. All of these responses showcase the need for the alignment talked about earlier in the report. The role of the PMO needs to be established based on the goals of the business and may need to change as those change. That said, the main theme here is change.
We all know change is hard, but the findings in this report highlight the need for organizations to adapt if they want to keep up with evolving business demands.
