"The End of the PMO - Creating and Sustaining PMO Value" by Eric Norman, Managing Partner - Norman & Norman Consulting LLC

When we look carefully at the most successful PMOs and compare them to those that struggle, there are a few characteristics among the vital ones that consistently set them apart. In this discussion we will review these characteristics to focus on critical aspects of PMOs that bring sustainable value to organizations.

In the initiative management world, delivering real value seems to be the most elusive aspect of any Program Management Office or PMO.  And because of this, the PMO seems to be one of the first places organizational leaders look to “right-size” or “optimize”, reducing the impact and potential value PMOs might generate for their organizations.  Perhaps that’s why there are so many articles – many of them addressing this very issue, appearing in our literature these days, and so many qualified practitioners reluctant to take roles in PMOs. 



Mr. Norman is a skilled management consultant and leader with extensive business process design experience supporting a broad array of industries. Over the past twenty-five years, Mr. Norman has specialized in strategic initiative management and business process leadership for a broad array of public and private organizations.

Eric has particular expertise in program management, business process and program design, decision support systems development and systems integration using the latest approaches and methodologies.

He is a frequent presenter at trade conferences at the Local, Regional, National and International level, and is a recognized authority on Program Management practice and project Work Breakdown Structures. As the 2007 recipient of PMI’s Linn Stuckenbruck Person of the Year award, Mr. Norman was recognized internationally by PMI for his contributions to the Project Management Profession, and in 2015 received PMI’s most prestigious individual award, PMI Fellow. In a volunteer leadership role, Eric is currently the Governance Committee Chair for PMI’s Certification Governance Council, a sub-committee of PMI’s Board of Directors, charged with oversight responsibility for PMI’s family of certifications.
