    Did you know that PMI®’s PMO Symposium® is coming to Houston, Texas?

    This event brings together PMO leaders and executives who direct an organization’s portfolio of projects, programs, and strategic initiatives. In 2016, the conference attracted over 700 PMO leaders from 500 organizations and 30 different countries.

    The PMO Symposium® 2017 held November 5th through the 8th at the Marriott Marquis in Houston, Texas, tentatively includes 80 interactive sessions, unique learning excursions, knowledge hub small group discussions, and distinguished keynotes. The three-day event intrigues, challenges, and inspires attendees through the delivery of practical, reliable, and relevant content that PMO leaders can bring back to their organization and implement.

    In a global economy characterized by rapid, sometimes unforeseen and disruptive change, organizations are forced to adapt quickly to mitigate the risks of such volatility. Just as importantly, change presents an opportunity to strengthen an organization. Examples include the implementation of new technology, lean techniques, and adopting new organizational structures that can consistently and efficiently deliver strategic business objectives. The theme of the PMO Symposium® 2017 will address the quest for greater agility in anticipating and responding quickly and appropriately to disruptive forces, competitive pressures, increased demands for greater innovation, and better business results. Speakers at the event will focus on two key topics: agile transformation, and the evolving PMO.
