November Dinner Meeting: Using a Program Office to Drive the Success of Enterprise Digital Transformation



Date: Wednesday, November 28, 2018

Presentation: Using a Program Office to Drive the Success of Enterprise Digital Transformation

CCRS Category: Technical

Presenter: Jonathan Blake

Meet Jonathan Blake, repeat presenter at PMI Global Conferences.  Discover his insights shared at the 2018 PMI Global Conference in Los Angeles on managing projects and program complexity using a Program Management Office.

Digital transformation is no longer an option. It’s a business imperative. Implementing enterprise-wide digital transformation requires large-scale change initiatives that involve many (if not most) business functions over an extended period. It can be challenging to successfully implement the needed concurrent, interrelated projects, and to manage them all in an efficient and effective manner.  A program office can overcome the challenges and enable a successful outcome. This session will demonstrate how to leverage program management techniques and a program office concept to create and navigate a transformational roadmap through the cycles of digital maturation.

Speaker Intro:

Jonathan Blake has over 30 years of consulting experience, helping organizations elevate their maturity in project, program and portfolio management.  He has established and led a variety of PMOs, designed and implemented project management and system development methodologies, and led or rescued numerous projects.   Currently, Jonathan serves as the head of the Global Project Management Office for NTT DATA Application Services and as the Manufacturing lead for its Project Management Practice.
