Responding to enterprise PMO implementation needs with change management methodology
As organizations grow in size and scope, the complexity of projects is continuously increasing. This can lead to increasing project failure rate and organizations have responded by implementing a PMO. PMO implementation is common to face the human resistance to change. The common thoughts are “if it works the way we do it then why change it” or “I have always done it like this”. A successful PMO implementation requires a change in mindset and the use of a change management methodology is essential. This master thesis will examine how people react on a PMO implementation within the organization as well as how change management methodologies could mitigate and manage such reactions.
