Abstract:

Over the last decade, the Project Management Office (PMO) has become a prominent feature in many organizations. Despite the proliferation of PMO in practice, our understanding of this phenomenon remains sketchy at best. The objective of this study is describing the reality of PMOs for Construction Organization in the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Industry of Iran at 2010 year. Nine major Iranian oil, gas and petrochemical organizations were participated in this survey. The study examines the reality of PMOs, the age of PMOs, the reason for their implementation and challenges during their implementation. Research concludes that PMO are a new concept and nearly 60% of PMOs have been in existence for 3 years. Monitoring project performance, supporting project management software tools and preparing project management methodology are the most used functions. Organizations are using PMOs to achieve the golden triangle project objectives (cost/time/quality). The study found that the most significant challenges in PMO implementation are the risk of changing organizational culture and the lack of professional staff.
