About The Simple PMO
I think that simple and high-performing are perfectly complimentary. To quote Wendell Berry, as quality increases "the tools will become simpler and the methods and the skills will become more complex." The Program Management Office should be unobtrusive, its tools and processes easily understood by everyone in the organization. They simply become part of the organization's mind and activities. As powerful as they are, though, they need skilled leaders to wield them and make them work.
