Trends by Function: Program Management Office (PMO)

Each year, Business Talent Group releases our High-End Independent Talent Report, looking across industries and business functions to analyze how business leaders deploy independent consultants, executives, experts, and project managers to complete critical work and meet their goals. Here are the top trends in how PMO leaders deployed these highly skilled talent in 2020.
