The common belief is that effort and money spent in implementing Project Management Office (hereafter PMO) has made a big difference in the level of success achieved in executing projects and programs, as it should define and maintain standards for project management within the organization. A conceptual framework is suggested and we use an empirical case study to test and refine it. This paper will contribute by showing how through taking standardization as the goal as well as using it internally, the Project management Offices (PMO) will contribute to the maturity level of the organization in terms of project management and increase the sustainability of their business. 409-427. The study conducted by Babaeianpour and Zohrevandi (2014) showed that the implementation of the PMO has a significant effect on improving the project performance monitoring and control, crosscutting projects management and decision-making. In this paper a conceptual model for portfolio optimization is presented. Exploring the dynamics of project management office and portfolio management co-evolution: A routine...

It is planned in time and has allocated resources necessary for its implementation. well as using it internally, the Project management Offices (PMO) will contribute to the maturity level of the organization in terms of project management and increase the sustainability of their business. The Project Management Office (PMO) is a rapidly emerging concept in project management that has evolved in terms of its application, sophistication, and proven results. The aim of this article is to exploit a rich database of descriptions of 500 PMOs to identify patterns in the data that can form the bases for one or more typologies of PMOs. South African Journal of Industrial Engineering. The Enterprise Portfolio Management Council. However, still this field suggests the need for more accurate and comprehensive models. The search for the bases of a typology relies on the identification of statistical associations (1) between the characteristics of PMOs and characteristics of their organizational context, (2) between the different characteristics of PMOs themselves, and (3) between the performance of PMOs and the characteristics of both PMOs and their organizational context. Despite the importance of this phenomena and the lack of understanding, there has been very little research on this topic. The purpose of this paper is to test the ability of seven project management office (PMO) roles to achieve strategic planning in large society development public organisations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Purpose of the article The purpose of the article is to investigate the relationship between traditional project management (TPM) and modern project management (MPM), with a special focus on agile project management (APM). programs. The results also demonstrated that PMO functions could lead to more improvements in “processes and procedures”, as a sub-component of KM infrastructure, compared with other sub-components. Are we achieving all the expected benefits?

Despite the proliferation of PMOs in practice, our understanding of this phenomenon remains sketchy at best. Many organizations today have recognized the need for a project management office (PMO) to achieve project management oversight, control, and support. Still, the challenge is to connect a long-term strategy for larger ecosystem development to the individual projects being undertaken. The research participants, identified through the website of the National Iran Oil Company (NIOC), were comprised of 46 oil and gas upstream PBOs which applied for exploration and production (E&P) certificate in Iran in 2016 and 2017. TABLE A1 FROM: Identifying and overcoming the challenges of implementing a project management office Rajendra Singh, Mark Keil and Vijay Kasi Table A1. The first phase was to investigate the relationship between PMOs and KM infrastructure and to prioritize PMO functions and KM infrastructure based on their existing implementation/establishment status in Iranian oil and gas upstream PBOs. Three new methods of determining the value of PMO are proposed. The survey data revealed that PMO enhanced the achievement of the strategic plan for better development of the business ecosystem. Corruption in public projects and megaprojects: There is an elephant in the room! Project management has become more than just a supporting role for businesses. PMOs are an important aspect of project management practice.

Ekonomika i Organizacja Przedsiębiorstwa, nr 9 (812) Project Management Office-PMO The Relevance for Project Based Organizations Master of Science Thesis in the Master’s Programme International Project Management EPHERAM DEMELASH GETAHUN Department of Civil and In this respect, Julian (2008) referred to the relationship between PMOs and KM in PBOs, but the significance and the details of such a connection had not been comprehensively explored. Knowledge management (KM) is regarded as an essential factor in project-based organizations (PBOs), leading to organizational learning across projects. The responses to the questionnaire indicate that strong reliance on theory for modelling and implementing a PMO is likely to lead to some disappointment. A two-phase quantitative survey strategy was exercised in this research. Despite the importance of this phenomena and the lack of understanding, there has been very little research on this topic. The Project Management Office (PMO) is an organizational entity with responsibilities related to the centralization and coordination of projects under its domain. There are many factors to affect Enterprise project selection, but each type of factor’s status and their evaluation are accompanied by the obvious fuzziness. Moreover, the organizational culture and the degree of openness to innovations are determining factors too. management, is vital. Finally, application from a practical point of view is presented and its meaning discussed. Thus, this study aimed to analyze the relationship between PMO functions and KM infrastructure, as KM enablers in organizations, in Iranian oil and gas upstream PBOs. The strategic value of a project portfolio obtained in the project portfolio evaluation process is used as the fitness function of the genetic algorithm. Overall, the main challenges in PMO implementation remain change management and the maintenance of an ongoing support over time. This study examines the relationship of In studying project management implementations for the Value of Project Management project, we chose to use three detailed cases and comparisons with the remaining 62 organizations in the value project to study how PMOs are connected to value realization for organizations investing in project management. in practice. In the mid–90s of the last century, the concept of project management office (PMO) was proposed to support companies simultaneously managing numerous projects.

The Organizational Project Management Maturity Model(OPM3) is becoming a focus of international management science and project management research, though specific studies are still at a starting stage. Over recent years, most PBOs have inserted project management offices (PMOs) into their hierarchical charts to manage their projects much more coherently. This jump can be seen as indicating that the importance of the PMO is growing over time. Conclusions The MPM methods, with a special focus on APM, are a good alternative for non-IT companies seeking new ways of managing projects in a turbulent, client-oriented environment. Findings Despite there are PMOs hosted by private organisations, the study is limited to the PMO within the context of the government and semi-government organisations in the UAE. © 2008-2020 ResearchGate GmbH. Furthermore, the questionnaire-based survey is applied to obtain relevant knowledge on the application of APM methods in the non-IT companies. overcome this changes and ensure alignment with the organization’s strategic initiatives. A conceptual model of construction enterprise project management maturity is established, including organization support program and organization project management. The perspective of the further development of Project Management is outlined in conjunction with broadly spreading digitalization, which is the main source of the fourth industrial revolution. Furthermore, we have found that PMO staff is relevant to international practice; that projects start and finish within the PMO; that organizations have some kind of a project management methodology but most of them are taken from existing and communication they have with the company's top management is continuous and successful. International Journal of Business, Humanities and Technology Vol. THE EFFECT OF A PROJECT MANAGEMENT OFFICE ON PROJECT AND ORGANISATIONAL PERFORMANCE: A CASE STUDY Depending on the specific needs of the host companies, Project Management Offices (PMOs) are created and mandated for different reasons. The project management office doesn’t always focus solely on standards and methodologies. This paper presents an acting model for an Agile PMO putting the PMO at the center of the organizational changes being it the catalyst of information and the disseminator of good practices and knowledge to sustain the changes. In an effort to model stock markets, many researchers have developed portfolio selection models to maximize satisfaction of investors. The second phase was fulfilled questioning 19 Iranian oil and gas industry experts to determine the one-to-one effect of PMO functions on KM infrastructure and to verify the first-phase results. As a matter of fact the model is a modular one with modules that are designed in a way that the model can be used for both purposes of portfolio selection and management without the problems that are common in most of the previous ones. All rights reserved. Specifically, we sought to understand how PMOs deliver sustained value to organizations. Written by ten successful project portfolio managers from companies including AAA, Boeing, Franklin Templeton, Johnson & Johnson, Safeway, and the UK Government, this easy-to-follow guide takes you through the project portfolio management process. This relationship was significant with regard to “practice management” and “technical support”, having the most considerable connections with KM infrastructure.

Identifying and overcoming the challenges of implementing a project management office. Originality/value Meanwhile, research in this area is still scarce and the topic is still insufficiently investigated, especially in the context of Croatian practices. No consensus exists as to the way PMOs are or should be structured nor as to the functions they should or do fill in organizations. In the evaluation process, the strategic value of a project portfolio is evaluated by considering both the strategy and the performance improvement of a system. This paper presents the research strategy, the overall program, and the results of the first phase of the research.
