The Project Delivery Office strives for simplicity. In fact, the first question in a PDO engagement is simply ‘how many project are you managing”? This question is asked to the organizations project officer, VP of Projects, Director of the PMO, etc.
The answer is usually “well, we have around 100 projects” or “I don’t know the exact number but it is several dozen”.
How can the person in charge of projects not know the exact number of projects that are being managed? The primary of objective of the PDO is to help your organization answer that question.
PDO uses tools and process to manage all of the project in a traditional, agile or hybrid environment. Providing consistent, accurate reporting on projects is the goal of the PDO.
