I've been in several organizations that have a PMO - Project Management Office. But I've never gotten a clear take on what the person who runs it should really be called. I've sometimes heard him/her referred to as "the PMO" but that really doesn't make any more sense than calling the person who runs the HR department "the HR".

Does anyone have a better title for this role that makes sense?

  • I believe this would be a better question for PM.SE itself and not a meta question. I would recommend you move it to the site itself. Commented May 23, 2014 at 23:21

    I suspect that there is no consistent title.

As far as I know the title of this role is "PMO Manager".


PMO Leader is occasionally used but the PMO Manager mentioned by @Marv Mills is far more common in the places I know.
