Why PMOs matter? 

 

PMOs are essential in ensuring that organizations execute their projects within scope, time, and budget. They provide a structured framework for project management, encouraging standardization, enhancing efficiency, and improving outcomes. 

By aligning projects with business objectives, PMOs enable companies to adapt to market changes quickly. 

How did International PMO Day start?

The idea was formed at the PMO Conference in London in 2022 where the founders of the Day were all together, thinking about what we could do together. We’re all from different parts of world – UK, Brazil, United States and Spain – and thought it would be great to kick off something where anyone working in PMO could get involved.
