In just a few words at his blog, Adventures in Project Management, Kerry Wills muses on the changing size of PMOs. In his experience, PMOs (or program management offices, at least) have shrunk. He has gone from PMOs with each function having a dedicated person to a four-person PMO for a nine-figure portfolio. Thus, Wills wonders if PMOs are becoming so mature that they can get by with fewer resources, or if “lightweight” PMOs are just becoming the new trend. Which strikes you as more likely? Or is there an element of truth to both scenarios?
