Reshape the role of the PMO for the digital era – TechTarget

The project management office is recreating itself in order to compete in this new world of electronics and digitization. Studies have shown that digitization is a priority of 87% of organizations and that many executive’s priorities are dependent on technology. Some of the changes include promoting the adoption of new practices and coordinating these practices among different teams. A successful PMO will also have to find and recruit digital talent as well as provide support for digital transformation.

  • The PMO can help recruit and foster IT talent, and support the delivery of enterprise digital programs.
  • Agile and adding part time assistants can make some responsibilities less pressing.
