“We recently utilized Forrester’s Advisory services for advice on how to optimize our Project Management Office and related governance process. The analyst helped us understand what areas needed improvement, some of which we hadn’t yet identified, and helped us implement a plan that was beneficial to all stakeholders. Forrester’s help saved us weeks, possibly months of discussion on how to proceed, and put us on the path to success.”
