75 percent of all PMOs fail within three years of starting

On April 11, Margo Visitacion, vice president, Forrester Research, Inc. and Jerry Manas, best-selling author of Napoleon on Project Management and senior editor at Planview, join together for a webcast discussion on how to focus the project management office on the big picture.

According to Forrester Research, Inc., 75 percent of all PMOs fail within three years of starting.* The webcast will focus on how PMOs need to be seen as an integrator and enabler for better decision-making, helping business leaders apply limited resources to the right projects at the right time.

During the discussion, Visitacion and Manas will identify three key areas where a shift in thinking (and doing) needs to happen to prevent a PMO from failing. Participants will also learn how a project portfolio management solution can enable this shift by automating processes and facilitating informed decision making.

Hosted by Planview, the webcast will allow participants to add their voice to the conversation via the Q & A session following the webcast and on Twitter by adding the hash tag #newpmo to tweets.
