036 – PMO – What is it really? And how do I run one?
This episode, we get the great opportunity to speak with Hussain Bandukwala, PMO Coach and founder of the PMO Virtual Summit this October. Hussain helps us understand what a PMO really is (and should be), then shares some great insights into the career path of someone who wants to be a PMO leader. He really gives us a great download on this episode – you may want to listen to it twice!
