Topic: 
Portfolio Management & PMO's of the Future

World-class institutions are just beginning to understand how to institute effective portfolio management discipline and PMO functions in their complex business environments. Organizations are moving into an era of increased accountability, results orientation, and measurements against Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s). Every company, regardless of revenue scale, corporate structure or personnel size, must adapt its methods and processes to enable successful audit, control, and governance of their project endeavors. They are required to do so with greater effectiveness and efficiency than ever before. This is a now a given in the PMO space. Yet, more is being demanded from the same markets that drive world-class institutions to achieve results, demonstrate leadership, ensure competitiveness, and increase sustainability as a result of their program investments.
World-class PMO’s must not only enable the adoption of sound procedures and project discipline; they will increasingly be held accountable for strategic direction, program alignment, and benefit realization. Please join us for this interactive discussion. We will address how modern portfolio management and the PMO function can be aligned to add undisputed value to an organization, create true operational differentiation, and serve as competitive advantage.
