What is the Gartner Program & Portfolio Management Summit all about?
As a rule, I avoid sharing events on here that are not purely focused on the PMO. However I decided to include this one for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it is focused at the strategic level - the space that Executive Level PMOs often operate at. Secondly, it includes a Senior Leadership track aimed squarely at individuals who report directly to a C-level executive and are an active Head of PMO, Program, Business Transformation or Change.
There are a number of sessions that will appeal to PMO Leaders - here's my pick of the crop:
The Future of PPM - Joanne Kopcho & George Martin
This session explores the role of the PMO in a digital world. It acknowledges the fact that many PMOs that have been around for the long-haul were designed to address a different set of challenges to the ones being posed by digital transformation. Kopcho and Martin explore how yesterday's PMOs rise to the challenge of digitization.
