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.

A county located in the East Midlands, Nottinghamshire shares borders with South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.
Those seeking PMO Analyst roles in the region will have plenty of options to consider, particularly in the larger settlements like Mansfield, Newark-on-Trent and Worksop.
Nottingham, the traditional county town, is the biggest settlement in the area, with the largest population. It also usually ranks within the top 10 highest GDPs per capita in the country. However, the county council is based in West Bridgford.
For much of its past, the region thrived on agriculture and textiles. Nottinghamshire is probably best known for its famous fictional resident, Robin Hood. Indeed, the legend of the man who robbed from the rich to feed the poor is the major reason for the region's high rate of tourism. Meanwhile, the local economy also relies on the service sector and retail.
What's more, a number of large companies have headquarters or major facilities in the region. Boots the Chemist was founded in Nottingham in 1849 and its head office is still there. Others include E.ON UK, Gala Group, Siemens, Speedo, Games Workshop, Experian, Reuters and Capital One.
