Identifying the Forces Driving Frequent Change in PMOs by Monique Aubry... [et al.]Project Management Offices (PMOs) are complex entities which go through frequent transformations during their average two-year life span. So, what does that mean to project professionals?

Identifying the Forces Driving Frequent Change in PMOs answers this question for both researchers and practitioners. Seventeen case studies and 184 responses to a questionnaire provide the foundation for this three-year research effort focused on the organizational change process surrounding the transformation of a PMO. Results show the temporary nature of PMOs and reveal that significant changes in PMOs can be associated with an organization’s internal and external environment.
