Impact and Change Management

Responsibility for assessing impacts of projects on their stakeholders — customers, employees, and shareholders — can be given to a PMO. A PMO as a focus for project activity can be in a good position to be able to understand the impacts of projects, both on each other and on stakeholders. For example, a PMO may be able to overview the impacts of quite separate initiatives on employees because of its vantage point. Individual projects may not have the same ability to assess these impacts.
