Does the situation sound familiar to you? If yes, then a Program Management Office (PMO) might be the solution to your problem.

Just like FAS Inc., to stay ahead of competitors in ...

In the Evolutionary Stages of a PMO, How Can You Identify the ...
There seems to be an abundance of recent research and published information on leadership in organizations these days.  Ironically, however, during the same time that the old method of listing and evaluating “attributes” of leadership has yielded to the critical examination of actual behavior in significant leadership scenarios, there have been fundamental breakdowns in basic leadership in some highly respected public and private organizations.  Much of the recent research and writing has focused on these breakdowns and their underlying causes. Many of us have observed both good and bad leadership in evolving PMO ... market research, surveys and trends

What part does offshore program management play in success of a ...
Just to clarify my perceptions on the terms used. A project is a timebound activity with specific objectives and resources assigned to it. A program is a series of projects carried out under one umbrella with a unified control, because there is a common thread behind it - the objective will normally to be leverage common resources across projects deriving a cost benefit as well as knowledge sharing and percolation. In that sense, a stand-alone single project perhaps does not need any offshore program management at all. However, if we talk about large offshore outsourcing deals, these are normally multi-year, mutli-technology, ...
