I would like to learn how formal Project Management Organizations (PMO's) are run in different industries and how they are perceived by their business partners.


Janet Candiano Oceanside, CA

I am currently working for a pharmaceutical company in the Enterprise Project Management Organization. I would like to learn more about the formal PMO as the majority of my career 13+ years was spent in the Consumer Packaging Goods Industry launching new products where the project leaders were integrated into the business.

If you have twenty minutes to connect and discuss this topic I would really appreciate hearing your perspective.

Thank you for your time,
