PMO means too many things

What does the term PMO mean to you?

In the work that our company does – ERP implementation – it’s the acronym for “project management office”.

However, if you use or market Oracle’s Hyperion product, I have learnt that PMO refers to “performance management organisation”.

The IT industry is renowned for its TLAs (three letter acronyms), but I have not come across a situation where the same TLA is used to mean to totally different things.

There is an additional problem for our company, we have started to promote a solution to projecting industries and the director responsible refers to PMO, but it means neither of the two above. So does that mean we have to invent yet another TLA?
