Our logo, ab imis foundamentis, is Latin locution meaning ‘from the very foundations’, renovation from the foundation. It was chosen because of the need to re-think (renovatio) our understanding, design and value of PMOs due to the way they have evolved over time and how they can continue to provide a permanent but adaptive project organizational structure. Thus, the value that comes with it the continuous process of regenerating a dynamic and adaptable PMO identity for multiple organizational designs without the limitations of the traditional PMO structure and the awareness of today business complexity.
