Mar 13, 2020

 

The Shoprite Group’s Portfolio Management Office (PMO) will represent South Africa at the 2020 Global PMO Awards after beating other top SA companies to take home the 2019 PMO of the Year Award

This annual competition is hosted by Project Management SA (PMSA), the industry body that represents the interests of project management professionals, and recognises the best resources, practices and results in this sector.

“The retail landscape has become increasingly sophisticated and therefore our PMO is essential in driving optimisation and innovation across our business. I’m very proud of our team and their commitment and am confident they will represent us well in the international competition.”

- Joseph Brönn, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Shoprite Group

 

The international contest drew contenders from 300 organisations in 110 countries this year.

Some of the ground-breaking projects managed by the Group’s PMO includes the roll-out (in under 18 months) of the new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System across its operations in 15 countries as well as the launch of the platform on which the Checkers Xtra Savings card runs.

Shoprite Group’s PMO consists of highly skilled professionals who manage collaboration between all business units and the successful delivery, monitoring, and evaluation of projects.
