In November, Auxilion hosted the first PMO related consulting event, reviewing the changing face of the PMO. We examined what organisations need and the changing ways of working. There were three speakers on the day, followed by a lively panel discussion. Our “Consulting and Projects” Director, Terence O’Donnell reviewed the PMO from its origins in the 1930’s and it’s maturity up to now. The PMO is no longer concerned with only achieving project deliverables and objectives for cost and resource utilisation. It is now tasked with the management of continuous improvement and cross-departmental collaboration in order to achieve strategic business goals.
