Please join us as April Jorgensen presents:
"Establishing a PMO" PDU: Strategic/Business
PMO can be a daunting process. The type of relationship your Project Management Office has with your business clients can determine whether you will succeed or fail. We’ll explore what it takes for your PMO to become a partner to your stakeholders, thereby dramatically increasing your probability of success!
During this presentation, we will explore the following:
- Project sponsorships and what does it mean?
- When does project rigor interfere with project progress?
- How do we get the proper ownership over the outcomes to ensure sustainability?
- Accountability and how can we establish it so the project manager is free from blame?

Join us as David Gillman presents on the state of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Learn the fundamentals of AI in applications across all industries.

AI is the next step in the journey to leverage data in order to predict future business events.
AI is coming to your company, whether through the latest ERP version of your software, Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, advanced robotics, the general need to make sense of massive amounts of data collected real time, and/or your executives' subscription to managed AI services. Where are we today in the technology and practice of applied AI? What are the evolutionary steps that analytics will take in this journey? Come to June's meeting to learn more.
