Not all organizations and not all individuals have yet clear in mind the potential of PMO, and its role is often limited to bare Project Management in its strict meaning, while the room for improvement is very various. The paper analyses the status of PMO through a survey conducted inside the Italian banking sector, trying to frame the role of PMO, throwing light on its importance for the company as a whole, and not just for a single project. A discussion of the results and future work concludes the paper.
