Mark Price Perry
Business Driven PMO Evangelist
As a result of his work with PMOs, experiences leading or being served by a PMO, and research conducted in support of his published works, Mark Price Perry pioneered the concept of the Business Driven PMO.
Often characterized as a “boat-rocker” and outspoken critic, Mark challenges the traditional approach to PMO setup and management that has been advocated and practiced within the industry and that has led to PMO failures and loss of executive support.
Mark offers an alternative approach to PMO setup and management, an approach driven by specific needs of the business as determined by the leadership team, not industry standards or the latest PMO models, buzzwords and hype. Mark is the author of the Business Driven PMO three-book series, published by J. Ross Publishing.
