Reflections on the Article
The article covered the discussion on the role of project management offices (PMOs) as they deliver the duties. I think that this job is very demanding since offer sufficient support for changing priorities and rapid delivery trips. This is probably why I think that for them to survive, it is necessary to change into working on finishing projects in a tactical manner. In this way, it is possible for PMOs to formulate and apply solutions focused on bringing in results. This new approach is designed to work by changing all the existing conventional approaches of administering a project. Some of the things I am aware that can be introduced in this new approach include transparency and reliability into different aspects of the organization. For the individual, I think that increase performance is a good thing for the PMOs who can work with dexterity and enjoy positive results. The arguments by Forrester were highly valid as far as their claim thatthere is a close relationship between PMOs and executive managementin terms of how they benefit strategic planning (Forrester Consulting 12).I think that PMOs are a new and welcome intrusion into the business ranks that can have a positive benefit on the outcomes and value across different levels.
The section on Forrester’s
article about the qualities of effective PMOs contained aspects that are
already evident in other personnel. However, these are customized for PMO purposes.
Giving them a position at the executive table means that they enjoy significant
powers that are necessary for instituting change. The second aspect is clear:
they are necessary for strategic planning. PMOs shaping strategy by giving
their expert opinion. The role of embracing core capabilities is almost
necessary for all employees in modern organizations. Lastly, the aspect of objectivity
that cuts across all industries and departments goes to show the central role
of this group of employees.
