From the Global Energy Institute

This paper explores key concepts to consider when organizing and staffing a program or major project, as well as key considerations for establishing a program or project management office (PMO).

At the end of this paper we hope you will have a better understanding of how to address the following challenges:

  • Do we have the right number and type of resources for the project?
  • How do we effectively structure our organization to manage large projects?
  • Do we have the required internal capabilities and capacity to develop the project?
  • How will we manage/leverage resources from various resources?
  • Are all the key roles and responsibilities known and documented?
  • Should we establish a PMO? If so, what skills do we need?
  • How should we organize our PMO?
  • Should our PMO be responsible solely for managing the project control infrastructure or should it actively manage all of our major projects?
