House of PMO and Comaea
Within this page we will explain why House of PMO decided to use the Comaea product and what this means for you, our audience and members.
The starting point was that having developed the PMO Competence Framework and published the book, we needed to release a web-enabled solution at some pace, to allow us all to maintain the generated momentum. The need for pace excluded a bespoke development and a spreadsheet-based step felt too limiting, so we looked around and Comaea offered an out of the box solution that met our initial needs.
Why We’re Using an Online Tool
- Offer individuals a way to bring the PMO Competency Framework to life.
- Offer organisations a way to look at their teams in the context of the PMO Competency Framework.
- Test the market interest in a web based PMO Competency Framework.
- Collate, interpret and share the broader picture presented by the anonymised user data set.
- Collate learning that will allow future iterations and releases of the PMO Competency Framework.
The PMO Competency Framework has been preloaded into Comaea’s structures and we can now invite individual members to use the tool to baseline their current knowledge and experience; to identify skill gaps and development needs and to benchmark themselves against a professional PMO standard.
We hope the PMO Competency Framework will become your career companion, a point of reference as you continue your journey through the rewarding, challenging and continuously evolving profession that PMO has become.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who can use the tool?
Individual members of the House of PMO who have Online, Full or Named status (Corporate Membership) will have access to the Comaea tool as part of their active membership package.
Who owns my profile?
We have long believed that a career belongs to the individual and as such, anything that supports it should also be owned by them. Through Comaea, we have the ability to link an individual profile into an organisation so they can see your profile and consider it in terms of the organisational requirements. However, should you move on, we can also de-couple you without any impact on your profile.
How do I sign-up?

As an online or full individual member you can access the sign up form here and request an account.
