Exploring the Driving Factors to Establish PMO in Saudi Construction Companies
Abstract: The Saudi construction industry is embracing productive and efficient tools for enhancement. This embracement includes applying PMO in construction companies. In addition, the Saudi construction market suffers from insufficient delivery, lack of cost, and time consuming. Hence, PMO is a management structure including standardizes, governance processes, and facilitates the sharing of resources, methodologies, tools, and techniques. Therefore, this paper explores the driving factors that lead construction organizations to establish PMO in the Saudi construction industry. Twenty driving factors were acknowledged as of a structured literature review of preceding relevant researches regarding PMO in different areas. Those driving factors were measured through Delphi survey questionnaires. Thus, altogether twenty driving factors were identified, nevertheless participants only agreed on thirteen driving factors. A descriptive method was used to define and arrange these driving factors. The study findings reveal that the main significant driving factors are 1) Lack of PM main pillars, 2) poor monitoring & controlling perf. of projects, 3) lack of training and education, 4) and lack of project methodology. These findings are vital in exposing the reasons that lead construction organizations to establish in Saudi Arabia, thereby helping construction organizations to apply the appropriate model of MPO based on understanding of functions.
