Transforming the Traditional PMO

How can you use project technology to improve project performance?


Digital PMOs need to utilise new technologies to improve the way we deliver, and facilitate greater collaboration and information sharing inside and outside of the project team. From a strategic point of view, the digital PMO aims to enable business and project people with project data - and enable project teams to measure and monitor non-physical project elements alongside human resources, in real-time.

The key challenge in adopting a digital PMO is the data integrity, security, stewardship, visualisation and integration, which requires careful thought and planning in light of the technical challenges.

This PMO Forum aims to take a deep-dive into the benefits of using digital project systems and data to deliver project information to stakeholders who need it - at any time, on any device – to drive continuous improvement in project delivery.
