Few PMOs have embedded these technologies, with many more not fully understanding what the technologies can do, but concerned by the scare stories that the PMO roles will disappear within the next 5 years. This session will present the findings from our latest PMO Manager’s Lunch and Inside PMO Report where a group of experienced PMO Managers who have embraced these technologies discuss: ...

Attendees will learn, through practical exercises, ...
