Session Title: PMOs and Benefits Realisation
Synopsis: The journey to benefits realisation is difficult for all PMOs. As the second hardest process to embed according to the State of Project Management Survey 2017 Ben has taken on the challenge of letting delegates explore the Benefits Realisation journey for Transport for London.
