PMO Delivery in the Digital Age: A Guide for Telecom Professionals
December 28, 2022
In the past decade, telcos have faced a myriad of challenges that have eroded value and compelled many operators to rethink what they should do. These challenges include an increase in the use of smartphones, growth of over-the-top (OTT) players, massive digital disruption and enormous changes in customer preferences influenced by online brands such as Netflix, Airbnb, Uber, Expedia, and a variety of social media platforms and tools.

Subsequently, the vast majority of operators feel they have to undergo digital transformation in order to survive and offer value to their customers.
This means that PMO’s are once again the fulcrum to ensure digital transformation initiatives succeed in helping telcos deliver the intended benefits to their customer base.

This book would appeal to both executives and PMO practitioners who seek to better understand the delivery of flagship digital transformation initiatives in the challenging environment faced by telcos.
While no prerequisite knowledge is required to understand key precepts from the book, readers with an acute awareness of delivery challenges in the digital age will benefit most from the content.
