The Program Management Office (PMO) must be independent of business and IT delivery teams with full-time empowered members responsible for the success of the program.

What makes the PMO effective is its independence and empowerment.The PMO should be independent of business or IT delivery and validation teams. An independent PMO enables objective analysis of the status and options for course correction, when needed. A PMO that is controlled only by either the business or the IT delivery team will not have the mandate needed for objective analysis. Subordinate everyone involved with the program to the PMO.
