DevOps and the PMO – Supporting Continuous Delivery

You might have heard the term ‘bimodal’ – adopted to demonstrate that the PMO supports both traditional waterfall projects and Agile-led projects.

The AI PMO: Threat or Opportunity? \\ Webinar 7th April or 8th April

Technology continues to make advances that can be embraced or ignored (at least temporarily) by our PMOs.
