Project Management Offices are responsible for not only ensuring projects complete within their organization's defined success parameters but are also responsible for sharing project management best practices to improve consistency and quality in the delivery of projects. Locating tools to assist the operation and management of PMOs and CoEs (Centers of Excellence) can be time consuming and expensive, and in many cases, unnecessary.
Standardization of Templates
OneNote's file based structure makes it easy for a PMO/CoE to create standardized templates for projects, engagements, and other repeatable processes. All a user needs do is to copy the template notebook for their own use and sections, pages, and files are all duplicated and ready to use.
Organization of content around PMO processes
Unlike shared drives and SharePoint sites, a OneNote notebook can be easily organized, reorganized, and shared among a team reflecting the process recommendations from the PMO office. A PMO or CoE can define recommended processes and then not only document those processes but also organize the notebook around echoing the workflow of the process for easier execution.
