Projects in Scope

There is a wide variation in the scope of projects for which a PMO can have responsibility. PMO responsibilities can include all the projects undertaken by an organization; all the projects undertaken by a particular functional group such as IT; or projects of a certain type. The scope of responsibility should be closely aligned to an organization's needs. Typically, when PMOs are first established, scope is restricted within an organization. This is often part of a "prove yourself" strategy as organizations assess the value of a structured approach to project management. PMOs may be established to progress particular organizational priorities. For example, many organizations set up PMOs to oversee and implement special projects. Similarly, PMOs have been set up to support organizational transformation projects or to facilitate organizational acquisitions. Projects in scope typically evolve over time to reflect changing organizational strategies and also organizational project management maturity.
