In large organizations, this unit might be termed "Enterprise-Wide" or Enterprise Project Management Office (EPMO). This signifies that such a PMO has influence beyond one business unit or functional area. In some cases, the "project" in EPMO is viewed more from a program perspective. A program is a collection of projects that have something in common, usually a product line or business unit emphasis.
