Presentation topic:
PMO is not needed, or why do companies create project offices? (UA)

More about presentation:
Do organizations always need a project office? Does the company really need a specific team that increases the overall administrative and operational workload, and its value is not always obvious to all employees? And you already have doubts about the feasibility of your PMO? We will consider examples of project offices and real needs in their functioning. These examples show what other motivations management can have in creating project offices – from formal to strategic and practical. How to recognize it and what to do if you already work in such an office - we will talk about this during the PMO day.
