Project managers need to have sufficient strategic perspective on business activities in the relevant organization and in their industry. This perspective normally seems to emerge for individuals in technical disciplines as they approach mid-career in association with appointments to early senior-level positions. Some individuals are unsure what to do with newly acquired business information, while others learn how to use it aptly in their business endeavors. The latter is likely to have a professional advantage in the industry and in the relevant organization and advance at a quicker pace. The PMO should examine opportunities to infuse standard and viable business concepts and practices into its operations, where possible. It should also research the availability of business-related education and training programs, workshops and seminars, and senior-level mentors that personnel in the project management environment can use to assist them in their professional growth.
