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 supporters.  

 

The qualified project managers and supporters from the PMO provide operative support and advice to the project head, ensure efficient project management according to the time, costs, and quality, and thereby make project management easier.

 

PEC provides support with the precise development of project management competencies through the improvement of suitable project management methods and tools, as well as the assurance of a customer-oriented product development (internal and external customers) through competent organizational support of the development projects.
