KPI for PMO in achieving project success

Hi, 

I would like know if there is anyway one could justify PMO's contribution in achieving project success. Basically the metrics like resource utilization, schedule, cost etc.. are handled and maintained by the project team. So the basic question would arise as to how the PMO contributed in improving these metrics. How can you pinpoint the extent of PMO's contribution in achieving different or any of the project metrics. Do you have a way that can be measured. Please do share your thoughts. 

 

Regards,

Bala

    In  many organizations the processes are defined and implemented. However effectiveness of process is lacking. e.g. Risk Management is being done in project, however many risks are not identified, due to this the projects get into problems when such risks materialize. 

    So process effectivness should be one of area that PMO should look at. The measure for such can be how many such effectiveness issues are identified by the PMO in a project (if it can be quantified in terms of $$ amount, it would be great)

    PMO overlooks the projects, programs, Sub programs, Portfolios and sub portfolios, their overall performance against the objectives and strategic goals of the organization.
