Speculate whether you would hire an experienced project manager or a
consulting company to facilitate the starting of the PMO. Support your
rationale with at least two (2) advantages of hiring your selection.
For years, IT departments have struggled to deliver projects on time and within budget. But with today’s emphasis on getting more bang for the buck, IT has to rein in projects more closely than ever. That challenge has led many to turn to project management offices (PMOs) as a way to boost IT efficiency, cut costs, and improve on project delivery in terms of time and budget. The advantages of selecting an experienced project manager are:
1- Home for project managers: Maintain a centralized office from which project managers are loaned out to work on projects.
2- Portfolio management: Establish a staff of program managers who can manage multiple projects that are related, such as infrastructure technologies, desktop applications and so on, and allocate resources accordingly.
