In that role I support and facilitate, amongst other responsibilities like management of a pool of PM(O) staff, the process authority for Benelux, Central and the Rest of Europe and Asia, the knowledge sharing, training classes for project managers and Project boards and a PM(O) network of PMO’s in Hong Kong, China, India, Japan, Malysia, Korea and Taiwan. I was Regional PMO Head for ING Insurance Central Europe.
