Query

Postby Prachi Bansal Sat Mar 10, 2018 11:56 am

Could anybody please explain me answer to this question.


Shon is a project manager for a strategic initiative in pharmaceutical company developing cancer drugs. There is perennial challenge in finding resources with right competence within the organization. While Shon’s focus is to manage constraints of Time, Scope and Schedule on the project, Raj - a key stakeholder and part of project steering group for Shon’s project is responsible to manage interdependencies among projects at enterprise level, methodologies and overall risks/opportunities and optimize use of shared organizational resources across all projects. How would Shon BEST describe Raj’s organizational role to her team members ?

I answered Portfolio Manager but the correct answer is PMO. Could you please explain why PMO and not portfolio manager?

You should refer to PMO roles and responsibilities in PMBOK,
'manage interdependencies among projects at enterprise level, methodologies and overall risks/opportunities and optimize use of shared organizational resources across all projects'

portfolio manager is only responsible at his portfolio level not at enterprise or organization level
