    A PMO creates value when, and only when, it enables educated, fact-based decisions regarding resource allocation across projects, programs, and portfolios. If, subsequent to one year of inception, the PMO cannot provide an up-to-date, accurate view of resource allocation, then it has failed in the single most important role that a PMO has in the organization.

    We think that we fail in decisions because of our own faults. In Business Decisions: D - Side Practical Decision Making Business Guide, we see this is not the case. Many recent popular science books have gleefully shown how irrational we are in making decisions. However, that is not the main reason why we fail in our decisions. The real challenge is our failure to grasp the complexity in most everyday life problems.
