While the number of PMOs overall remains steady, its level of maturity has grown worldwide.

This survey investigated the PMO’s function, its role in the organization, its value and its involvement in training project management professionals.

  • The top five PMO functions and their level of scope within organizations
  • The future of PMO funding
