Large projects can become incredibly complex, and with complexity comes confusion and a tendency to let inefficiencies creep in. That’s why the project management office (PMO) analyst is brought in. He or she is tasked with monitoring the data flowing through the process and identifying weak spots, inefficiencies and other problems that are causing unnecessary costs to mount up. Often, the PMO analyst is required to audit a process and come up with a set of standards that become the goal of those involved in the process, and then he or she will ensure these standards are met.
The PMO analyst usually oversees the project support officer and they collectively support and maintain the project management, and often report to a project manager or director who should act on the PMO analyst’s recommendations. PMO analysts can be on short–medium-term contracts as they oversee a particular change or transformation, or they could be full-time employees imposing constant improvement and efficiencies on an ongoing process.
Depending on the role and the industry, some companies demand experience in industry-standard methodologies like PRINCE2 or similar as a basic qualification, whereas others will be happy with a proven record of process improvement through analysis. The handling of data is the PMO analyst’s most important individual task. You should know how to collect process data accurately and to maintain it clearly and accessibly. You also need to understand how to interpret the data so that you can start putting reparative measures in place.
You probably won’t be sitting looking at dials and graphs all day – you will be getting out into the workplace and talking to people about their processes and problems and thus identifying issues. This can be more telling than any raw performance data. Experience in the same industry as the business will be of great assistance if you are to quickly get up to speed with how it works.

Located in Essex, Chelmsford was granted city status in 2012 and is the only city in the county. It is situated on the River Can, around 32 miles from Charing Cross and is considered to be part of the London commuter belt, meaning it offers a range of options for those seeking PMO Analyst positions.
Chelmsford's history can be traced far back in time and evidence of Neolithic and Bronze Age settlements have been found. In 1199, the town was granted a royal charter and the market is still held in the centre today.
During the Middle Ages, Chelmsford was named the county town of Essex and its population continued to grow in size. The railway arrived in the middle of the 19th century, leading to further economic growth and by the late 1800s, it had become known for its manufacturing industry, particularly electrical equipment.
In 1899, the world's first radio factory was opened in Chelmsford and during the second world war, the region produced machinery and light engineering.
During the end of the 20th century, Chelmsford declined economically. However, the city has gone through major regeneration over the last 30 years and these days it is an important location for administration and distribution.
Chelmsford is currently home to a number of large companies, including investment managers the M&G Group, electric motor manufacturer ebm-papst UK Ltd and e2v Technologies, which is known for its high-tech engineering products for the medical, science, aerospace and industrial markets.
