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.Read more ›
