PMO Manager Job Description

A project manager office (PMO) is a widely-used term for a project management office (PMO), which differs in purpose from other project management offices and is sometimes referred to as a strategic planning office (SPO).

A project management office is devoted to project management, and is distinguished from other project management offices by its focus on project management, and its involvement in day-to-day project management, as opposed to general planning and strategy.

A PMO is a semi-autonomous unit of a division or department that is responsible for the overall project management of the division or department.

It acts as a liaison between project managers and other divisions or departments.
