CA recently published results of their survey on the value of the Project Management Office. The study contained some very interesting results.
The survey, conducted by Pole to Pole Communications on behalf of CA, was conducted during November and December 2008. The respondents numbered 249 from 14 different European countries: Austria, Benelux, The Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Norway, Poland, Spain, Turkey, the UAE, and the UK.
You can view the entire report here. Here are some highlights of the survey:
In terms of some cold-hard percentages:
I find the numbers interesting, but not surprising. It still seems that most organizations are not far along in the maturity process for their PMO. In my personal experience, it seems that some organizations never get it right and keep trying to re-invent the PMO. One organization I worked for in the late 90’s and early 2000’s is on their third iteration of a Project Management Office. They form, dismantle, do something different, and then re-create the PMO all over again.
This survey is very interesting and I again encourage you to read the full report.
