UWIT Lunch and Learn a Success

PMO’s – The Future, According to Gartner
Jennie Fowler, a Project Management expert, presented her view of the PMO looking ahead several years at the Upstate Women in Technology learning lunch on September 28th.  It was an eye-opening presentation on the IT Project Management Office and its future.
Did you know that Gartner predicts by 2020 that 60% of current IT Project Managers will be replaced by other roles outside of IT? 

Some questions that were covered in this luncheon were:
•  Where is project management headed by 2020?
•  Why are some current project management practices insufficient?
•  What new PM skills and capabilities are critical for your future?
