Architectural, Engineering, & Construction (AEC) Forum - 181113

"Strategic PMO – Driving Outcomes" 
Presented by Smriti Motwani, PMO & Operations for NCR

The PMI Atlanta AEC Forum is a focus group that hosts regular events with ranging topics in the architectural, engineering, and construction fields. We will show the importance of solid project management in these related fields of study.


To remain viable in today’s fast-paced world, the project management office (PMO) needs to evolve from tactical projects to enabling programs that drive business outcomes. High performing PMO’s are aligned to the strategic priorities of a company and help empower executive teams to make quick decisions and address roadblocks to achieve better business outcomes.

Strategic PMOs are moving from being involved at the implementation phase of product delivery to being engaged at the strategic and discovery stages of product lifecycle. In addition, Strategic PMOs are responsible for establishing best practices and standards from a company-wide view.


SmritiSmriti Motwani leads the PMO & Operations for NCR in which she is accountable for Product Lifecycle Management for NCR products. Within her purview is driving the top strategic initiatives for NCR to bring next generation products to market in terms of adoption and revenue generation. She is passionate about driving a culture based on performance, quality and accountability. Smriti believes in leveraging the PMO as the grooming ground to prepare teammates for future leadership roles.

Smriti is a customer-facing leader with a unique blend of sales/account management and execution experience. In her previous roles, she was responsible for leading operations for NCR Cloud Payments and Customer Success teams. Smriti has experience leading professional services teams and has proven competency in project/program management, consulting and software development.

Smriti is a strong proponent of “take care of the customers and employees and the business will take care of itself.”
