Top Ten Messages from the PMO Symposium 2016

There were about 700-800 people in attendance over the three days – and the set up was the same as last year. Some opening keynote speeches – a learning excursion (I picked the hospital – fascinating when you compare it to the NHS and what we have here) – then sessions you could pick from across six different streams. Some of these streams were what they called Knowledge Hubs, small groups of people being facilitated in a discussion about a particular topic.
This year, Eileen Roden, PMO Flashmobber joined me – and we bumped into John McIntyre (Ticketmaster PMO Manager, who was presenting a couple of sessions) and Mr Portfolio, Craig Kilford.
