From Peacekeeper To Change Agent
Empowered EPMOs Can Be Engines of Organizational Agility
Forrester didn't mince words to summarize a report it published earlier this year: The Sorry State of Digital Transformation in 2018. The report's survey results made clear that cultural inertia is a big obstacle to transformation, and agility and cross-departmental collaboration are key competencies to develop. It's strange to find companies still struggling to adapt quickly in the digital age. I suspect that many business leaders don't realize they can leverage something in plain sight to drive change: the enterprise project management office (EPMO). Once viewed as the enforcer of the corporate order, the EPMO today is uniquely positioned to eliminate silos and encourage dexterity in the age of change.
