We invite you to join us for the launch of the Ireland Chapter of PMI, PMO Community of Practice

The objective of the PMO Community of Practice is to provide a  forum for PMO practitioners in Ireland to meet and discuss matters of mutual importance and to create knowledge to be shared across the PMO community.

The Community of Practice is part of the Ireland Chapter of PMI,  

We welcome practitioners who enable and support the management of change in organisations. We encourage membership from across the whole PMO community from leaders, sponsors, practitioners to new entrants in the field.  
Our aim is to provide a collaborative open forum for a PMO community with an interest in the role of PMOs, to get together, share ideas, offer support and advice to the PMO community, and to create valuable practice-oriented knowledge, which helps drive the PMO profession forward in Ireland.
