This Forrester Consulting study was commissioned by PMI to evaluate strategically aligned PMOs. Forrester’s hypothesis was that these PMOs play an active part in strategic planning and support execution through consistent but flexible execution practices. In-depth interviews with 40 PMO leaders made it clear the link between these PMOs and successful business outcomes.

The study found that successful PMOs:

  • Have a seat at the executive table
  • Are a vital part of the strategic planning team
  • Embrace the core competencies of project management
  • Use consistent objectives across industry and regions

This report reveals how strategic PMOs enable an organization to grow its business through a core set of practices that deliver consistent outcomes.
