PMO/ Project Manager Pool – Project Management in Complex Development Projects

The Project Management Office (PMO), as an administrative department, is the key to uniform project management that remains successful and sustainable in many companies.

 

Along with the standardization of project management at the best practice level through the project and company-wide transfer of knowledge, the PMO also provides projects with project managers and associates.  

 

The qualified project managers and associates from the PMO provide operative support, advise the project lead, and ensure efficient project management that meets the cost, time, and quality requirements.
