How (well) PMO is helping you?

I’m coming across with quite a lot operational stuff at my work, which I think Project/Program Manager should take care of. It really takes big chunk of my time, and instead of focusing on the product vision/roadmap I have to chase daily operational stuff. How is PMO helping in your organization? Are happy with their work/help?

    We have a PMO and they are mostly idiots who don’t know what my team actually needs. They do forward a lot of emails though!

    Sorry I thought PMO was porn, masterbation, and orgasm. That why I clicked here. πŸ˜¬πŸ†πŸ˜…

    They don't help as much as they should. Have to constantly ask for things to happen instead of them being proactive, which is in their job description. They do help somewhat, but not to the extent they should. I feel like at the level they're performing now, their jobs could be automated away with good software.

  • You talking about PMO training (like PMP), are you talking about PM type people being hired on to teams, or are you talking about a full PMO organization built in your company
