As Work Becomes Decentralized, PMOs Deploy Solutions to Optimize Workflows

The management of high-value work is decentralizing. Rather than relying on traditional project managers or a project management organization (PMO), businesses today are finding that in a very real way, everyone is a project leader.

So what does this mean for PMOs in enterprise organizations? According to Chris Marsh, Research Director for 451 Research, PMOs must rethink the following in order to remain competitive:

  • What is meant by “projects” and “portfolios”

  • What is the role of the PMO in an organization

  • Which tools are needed for business leaders

  • How work is executed across an organization

At ENGAGE’18, Marsh further explored these insights into how enterprise organizations can best manage work at scale. He was joined by a panel of business experts from Motus, Roche Diagnostics, and Western Digital — all of whom have deployed Smartsheet solutions to accelerate their work execution.

Watch the session below to hear this expert panel share lessons learned, best practices they used to deploy their solutions, and what their solutions look like in action.
