How to use this book The handbook is most useful as a resource for thinking about what a PMO can do and how it might solve specific problems. The breadth of material covered is impressive.

By far, the best -yet- reference on Project Management Offices. I use it as a reference and even give it away within my PMO setup and management courses. Kim rated it it was amazing Aug 02, 2012.

The Complete Project Management Office Handbook, Second Edition identifies the PMO as the essential business integrator of the people, processes, and tools that manage or influence project performance. This book details how the PMO applies professional project management practices and successfully integrates business interests with project goals― regardless of whether the scope of the PMO is limited to managing a handful of specific projects or expanded to oversee the total practice of project management within the organization.

The book first considers the five stages of PMO capability, each benchmarking a particular level of capability achieved if functions are fully implemented. Each stage is also indicative of the organization’s maturity in project management, with the PMO’s role and responsibilities advancing from project management oversight and control at the lower end of the competency continuum to strategic business alignment at the higher competency stages.

This revised edition then examines 20 function models that can be used to guide the organization through the deliberation and the development of PMO operational capability. These models suggest what project management capability can be realized through comprehensive implementation of each PMO function.

Providing project and business managers with a starting point that enables them to achieve desired results from project management, The Complete Project Management Office Handbook is an important resource for everyone involved in making project management work effectively within the organization.

Excellent book. Libro excelente.

This is a very comprehensive text on what is required for a PMO but not quite what I was hoping to get. I was hoping for a book that gave more specifics about how PMO's work rather than a more broad based treatise on the scope and requirements of a PMO. My search continues...

It seems that someone wanting to glean the principles of project mgmt is doomed to wade through endless pages of often duplicated material.

I rarely ever make book comments; however, because I saw a one star review, I just had to share my two cents.

Let me first start off by saying this is bar-none one of the best project management office books I have ever read. The way the concepts were organized and presented illustrate a solid approach to building a PMO office from scratch to a "center of excellence".

Please note that the book is written for senior project managers, program managers, and PMO directors who need a orchestrated approach to developing a project management office for their organization. It is NOT written for beginner or novice project managers hoping to learn fundamental concepts about project management or project management offices. It is an excellent reference book to keep on your book shelf to help develop and enhance Project Management Office development ideas.

This book has been instrumental in helping me to develop a strategic roadmap to further develop a recently established PMO office in one of the largest software engineering organizations in the world. (look my name up on the Internet )

Key takeaways for me:

1. Well explained PMO maturity model
2. Detailed explanation of each PMO maturity phase and the action items needed to be accomplished in order to move on to higher phases
3. A simplified summary at the end of each chapter for smaller organizations with less resources/capital.
4. Excellent and consistent charts and graphs. Other books are poorly illustrated.

In Summary
I have over 10 years of project management experience in the automotive and software engineering world and this book has proven to be one of the best books on strategic Project Management Office development.

The Complete Project Management Office Handbook

If you don't like to read a lot, I'll sum it up: Great Benefit / cost ratio!

It addresses in a simple and straight-forward way almost every topic one involved with a PMO would be interested in.

It contains the following 5 Sections.

1) Practice Management
2) Infrastructure Management
3) Resource Integration
4) Technical Support
5) Business Alignment

Following I present a list highlighting the positive points of this book:

1) Project Management Methodology,

2) PM Tools

3) Standards and Metrics (nicely presented a table of "Standards and Metrics Activities across the PMO Continuum" ranging from a Project Office to a Center of Excellence),

4) Project Planning,

5) Recovering,

6) Auditing,

7) Carrer and Team Development,

8) Project Portfolio Management, and

9) Others.

Since it presents the contents of several dedicated books, be prepared to face a big book (around 700 pages). But it is easy to read.

In its second edition this is the most complete reference in PMO I've came across. Make sure you buy the second edition (if you like to buy used books and save money!).

Hope this helps!

This book provides comprehensive coverage of project management office functions and structures the 20 functions in five main categories: practice management, infrastructure management, resource integration, technical support and business alignment.
In addition, it provides advice on focus for the 5 main types of PMOs on the PMO competency continuum: the project office serving an individual project, the basic PMO, the standard PMO, the advanced PMO and the center of excellence with a strategic focus.
It is not meant to be read cover-to-cover but as its name suggests to be used as a reference material when building the services of the PMO. This is a conceptual book which structures the thoughts like the PMBOK does it for example, but lacks concrete examples of implementation.
Nevertheless, it helps a great deal in giving ideas of services to be implemented depending on the goal of your own PMO. Buy this book when you need to define the scope of your PMO, not to find ideas on how to sell the PMO to your organization.

I do agree that it reads like a large dictionary. Very heavy on the lists and detailed plans but what I miss are application cases and real life examples. This would give definitely more depth to the content, which at this moment seems to be too much of the theory.
