THE PMO GLOBAL AWARDS

AWARDS OVERVIEW

The PMO Global Awards is the annual world’s largest professional award for Project Management Offices, their organisations and leaders.

 

It was created in 2018, hosted by PMO Global Alliance, and annually recognizes and honors the work and efforts of organizations and individuals around the world, celebrating the representativeness and diversity of countries, cultures and experiences.
