PMO-as-a-Service OVERVIEW:

When it comes to running projects, most organizations face one or both of two key challenges. The first is that the project brings together a disparate group of people with varied skills who may or may not have worked together before and they all have their own (occasionally entrenched) ways of working. In addressing this, businesses typically establish a Project Management Office (PMO) a business function that specifies, manages and reports on projects within the organization. Businesses also frequently encounter a second challenge, realizing the return on investment for this sometimes costly venture.

Alleviating Project Management Office headaches

Failed or poorly delivered projects leave executives facing many project shortcomings. These include:
• Cost overruns
• Timescale overruns
• Uncontrolled scope
• Unsatisfactory control and reporting
• Non-compliance with business standards and/or legislation

How can BPO offer a remedy?

To resolve these project management challenges, companies are increasingly embracing outsourcing across a wider range of front and back office to help transform their businesses. The reason? In addition to significant cost savings, Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) has become a lever for driving business growth and innovation.
