The overall view: Project Management Office (PMO) services

Would you like to hear a terrifying statistic? Trust us, it’s in your best interests.

In 2012, McKinsey and the UK’s prestigious University of Oxford reported that 17 percent of IT projects go so badly wrong that they threaten the very existence of their company.

Now that we’ve jolted you to attention, we can also inform you that large IT projects run on average 45 percent over budget and seven percent over time. They also deliver 56 percent less value than anticipated.

So why does this happen? The reasons cited fell into four major categories:

  • Lack of concentration on stakeholder and strategy management, with focus instead on budget and scheduling
  • Failure to secure critical internal and external talent, leading to an inability to master both technology and project content
  • Failure in team effectiveness, because team members’ incentives were not aligned to overall project goals
  • Poor core project management practices, such as the absence of short delivery cycles and rigorous quality checks
