An organization that implements projects or a PMO without the leadership of the organization’s explicit acceptance is doomed to fail. Confusion about who leads departments or projects will cause the organization to be divided. A house divided can not stand.
Failing projects cost valuable resources.
People are called project managers for all sorts of reasons. Many times a person is selected to be a PM because of technical competence. If the PM can not lead and work within the framework of project management best practices the PM will fail costing you valuable resources.
Like picking a top coach, quarterback, or ball handler; picking and developing the Program Office Manager, Project Manager, or team member, is critical to your project’s’ success.
Virtual project teams that have members who have grown up with the social internet are most vulnerable to finding themselves leaderless. Everyone contributes democratically yet clear responsibility for the deliverables is often lacking.
