Abstract: The learning objectives are the significance of Quality Audits within the Project Management Landscape and exploring diverse quality indicators and measures relevant to Project Management.

Working with and inside several project management offices (PMO) over the years I have been able to come to one quick conclusion…. quality does not happen automatically nor is it one-dimensional. 

There are multiple ways that quality should be embedded within the PMO as well as within the component projects.

This session will discuss ways to implement quality measures within the PMO and ensure more predictable, measurable outcomes for the organization.
