CEO Today - September 2023 Edition

By Gero Renker, Program Framework WHY SHOULD THE C-SUITE CARE ABOUT THE PMO? In the ever-evolving landscape of business, the Project Management Office (PMO) often finds itself in a paradoxical position – potentially a crucial component of organisational success, yet frequently undervalued. According to research conducted by Program Framework, around 50 per cent of PMOs feel they are not recognised for the value they deliver to an organisation. This indicates that senior leaders often see the PMO as an administrative entity and do not recognise the transformative potential it holds as the engine room of strategic initiatives. When the connection between the PMO’s work and the overall business strategy is unclear, senior leaders may struggle to see the direct impact of the PMO’s efforts on the bottom line. But there is much they can do to harness the potential of the PMO and empower it to drive the organisation’s strategic objectives.
