About the workshop
PMO owns a unique place within an organisation, tackling the complexities of large-scale change and the execution of vital programs. Frameworks and forecasts form the backbone of any successful Project Management agenda, but in order to punch it up to the next level and emerge as a true leader and business partner, project managers need to expand their knowledge base and master a new set of leadership skills.
