PMO Kayaking

Also in June, my boss floated the idea of a PMO team kayaking trip. We have a pretty solid Project Management Office gang over at GOVECS. We all get along, help each other out, pump each other up, and at times push each other’s buttons. The team itself is a mix of O.G. guys together with…
