Well the answer depends on YOUR organization, not mine. Anyway, here's the answer about my organization...

Here's some information about the working environment of my organization:

- It uses a functional organizational structure: Which means that the resources are owned and operated by the functional managers, and that the project managers merely schedule the resources, but do not manage them directly.

- There is no PMO: Which means that project management is not controlled: methodologies are random, forms/templates/documentation are not consistent across projects.

- Most resources are contract based: Which, in my opinion, decreases loyalty and ownership of the tasks (resources just do not care about anything), and increases costs.
