This white paper discusses the strategy of establishing a project management office (PMO) to ensure IT investments address both near- and long-term needs. In the paper, CDI IT Solutions shares insights into how to focus on spending decisions so that they make the greatest impact to the bottom line. It discusses such spending decision aspects as:
- How the business and IT leaders need to work together to get maximum value from IT investments

The paper also presents insights on how to allocate responsibilities in a PMO and how to avoid the pitfalls that cause many organizations’ PMO implementations to fail.
