We had planned to showcase a profile of Verizon Wireless Marketing PMO last Thursday on International Project Management Day, but those plans were ... well, overcome by events.

Posted by Allen Young in Culture & Change Management, Project & Program Management, Demand Management, Human Capital, Performance Measurement, Resource Optimization | 2 Comments

Like maturity (see previous post here), capacity doesn’t always come up as a significant factor in Organizational Change Management (OCM) discussions but in my experience it is equally as important.
