As the client sees it:

Jan Řeřicha

Head of PMO
"Thanks to Agile Resource Management, we are moving towards having all projects in the company visualized in one place. It serves us as kind of a road map that has almost all the information we need to realize the product vision. During review and planning, everyone in the PMO can clearly see when we want to implement each project and if we have enough resources for this to happen."
