Supporting Portfolio, Programmes and Projects

At Level Two of the PMO career path, the PMO here can mean portfolio, programmes or projects.

Level Two roles include Co-ordinators; Analysts, Planners and more experienced Project Support Officers.

At this level we see PMO practitioners working in Portfolio Management Offices; Programme Offices and Project Offices so learning and development at this level covers all of these.

It might feel like a large jump from the project support roles to supporting portfolios but there is a progression which is supported by the PMO certifications and training available.
