What Project Office Does


The Project Office addresses these needs:

1. It creates a cadre of people skilled in the art and science of project management.
2. These people view their job totally as project management, eliminating the conflict with other responsibilities. Measurements (and rewards) can be developed more along the lines of critical project success factors.
3. These people reside outside of the individual technical functions, removing home territory biases.
4. The PO becomes a repository for project experience, models and standards ... to be shared with the all project leaders.
5. The PO maintains awareness of the "big picture," seeing the whole project and all of the projects. Therefore, the PO is more readily able to monitor trends and see global problems. The PO is in a better position to provide information and reports to senior management, and to make recommendations to resolve conflicts and problems.
