Presentation: An FT Story: The PMO Evolution
In this presentation Jo will guide us along the evolutionary journey of the PMO at the FT, spawning from an admin to a data-driven function. Establishing new technologies and automation at its core, the PMO has filled a void between Finance and IT, with its intelligent use of data.
Jo will demonstrate how enhancing the communication and collaboration amongst business stakeholders, through the PMO, led to a more balanced and integrated approach in reaching business objectives and achieving greater financial transparency and performance.
