  • Research 2022: The Current State of PMOs in India (Initial Survey Findings)

The community was interested in understanding and improving the current state of PMOs in India when the PMO Global Alliance’s India Hub was established in May 2021. The volunteers Mahesh EV, Yuvraj Mirashi and Yashita Arora got together and decided to conduct a research project on “The Current State of PMOs in India”. During the survey it is observed that PMOs are not yet regarded as an essential component of a value-added organization. PMOs are less well understood in India. Our goal is to identify gaps and the challenges in PMO implementation, definition of PMO roles, PMO organization structure, growth path, goal and strategy definition, and best-case scenarios.
