What are the most important skills needed to support the effective functioning of a PMO? What type of leader is needed to ensure that the PMO launches successfully? Can a deep background within the industry and a comfort maneuvering in the organization make up for limitations in project management knowledge? This is the focus on this week’s debate. Our motion this week is:

“An organization that appoints a PMO leader who has no experience in project management and no track record in PMOs is doomed to failure”

Listen to the debate and let us know what you think.
