PMI Thumb Chapter November Dinner Meeting (11-08-2017)

Join us for the PMI Thumb Chapter Meeting - 11/08/2017

TOPIC: Avoid These Deadly Sins to Keep Your PMO Relevant

SPEAKER: Nicole Pettiway, Delphi


Today, more than 80% of organizations have one or more project management offices (PMOs), up from only 47% of organizations in 2000. However, stereotypical PMOs and their leaders, if fixated solely on control and consistent, one-size-fits-all process, are viewed as barriers to progress in this age of rapid change. Learn about the common deadly sins of PMOs and what to do about them to keep your PMO relevant.
