Abstract: The faculty of Innovative Technologies of the University of Applied Science of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI), starts in November 2017 a study for assessing the importance and the diffusion of a project management structure in the Swiss companies. The study, has been based on a structured Survey, written in four different languages (Italian, English, German and French) sent to a huge pool of Switzerland companies and it aims to understand the maturity level relating to managing projects. More precisely, the following research study focuses to analyse the existence of dedicated office for project management (i.e. PMO) in the inquired companies and therefore its correlation with project’s success rate by identifying the most important criteria and factors responsible for such a positive outcome. This research will provide objectives and unambiguous results showing the importance of a central entity/office (PMO). The presence of this internal structure into a company makes the difference to the project’s success achievement and to the overall strategic management, resolving the very common lack of leadership and lack of clear business objective understanding.
