Format: Hardcover
When I first got this book to review, I was quite excited, seeing the PMI PMOSIG name attached to the book I was expecting something like the OGC P3O manual crossed with the PMI PMBoK. However when I got it and started to read, I was sorely disappointed, as it wasn't going to be the next P3O manual to tell me how I should be running my PMO, giving me step by step instructions on how to deliver a world class PMO. The key bit was in the strap line `Strategic and Tactical Insights for Improving Results'. Instead what I got was 20 chapters (although only 19 chapters are listed there is a `bonus' chapter in the epilogue) of white papers, written by PMO experts from across the world, put together to try to provide a view across the entire PMO spectrum. This is a book which assumes that you are already in a PMO, and that you want to improve the value of the PMO within the company.
The first thing the book does is explain that there is no consistent definition of a PMO, not in what that PMO will do, or indeed what the P in the PMO actually stands for, whereas you may find this frustrating, it actually allows the chapters in the book to hang together, as they can cover the different types of PMO out there, so you should find a chapter which is relevant to the type of PMO you are (or are aspiring to be).
This is definitely a book which you need to dip in and out of, rather than read from cover to cover. For a start each chapter is fairly thought intensive, none more so than the first chapter, which tries to cover the full remit of a PMO, in detail in only 16 pages, which is the book equivalent of trying to put a day's presentation into an elevator pitch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and Tactical Advice 4 Jun. 2014
By BB - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is a collection of articles from different authors. There is a lot of good practical advice within its pages even though it's not a step by step plan to develop a PMO. It provides a significant amount of insight for anyone setting up a PMO. I've found it useful.
