Impacts and Recommendations

  • Digital transformation, new delivery models and central IT disaggregation will require that organizations and their PPM leaders shift their emphasis from IT-only PMOs to strategic EPMOs
  • A changing business environment will force EPMOs, their leaders and staff to play a greater role in matching enterprise strategy and goals with appropriate action models and hybrid acquisition sources
  • Shortages of advanced capabilities and skills will drive organizations, PMOs, and their leaders to invest in new PMO/EPMO talent and internal partnerships
