What our client say about us
It was a real eye-opener for me that allowed me to look into the PMO world from a different perspective. I understood the project, program, portfolio management in the context of PMOs.
Although i have been in this fiels for many years, this outstanding experience has introduced me to a new world full of unique experiences, opportunities and a great chance for personal growth.
I thought I had a good understanding of how to establish and manage PMOs, but the principles and ideas gained from the course proved the opposite!
