Optimizing the efficiency of managing projects lends itself to being governed by a Project Management Office (PMO). The objective of this project was to develop a PMO that would oversee and be an entity that directs projects and the portfolios of the company. A gap analysis has been performed via interviews that were conducted with the PMO managers and stakeholders of a large, Portland, Oregon, based manufacturing company. Several areas of improvement were identified in the research that was completed for which this report identifies and makes suggestions for as 2.0 version of the PMO for this corporation.
