PROJECT PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP

Johannesburg, South Africa,
19 – 22 August 2013

PROJECT PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP

Overview & Why You Should Attend This Workshop

- An intensive hands-on workshop that focuses on a practical portfolio management methodology and offers high value tools, techniques, and best practices.

As organizations reach higher levels of maturity in managing projects individually, they shift their focus to manage them collectively as project portfolios using project portfolio management (PPM) process.

This transition seems to occur when the organization realizes that projects are investments – not expenditures – requiring justification that they are aligned with organizational goals and will create value for the owners and other stakeholders of the organization. Managing project investments collectively brings coherence to implementing the strategic as well as operational initiatives and helps the organization create sustainable value in the long run. This course provides you with the tools, techniques, and best practices for managing project portfolios. It offers a “how to” methodology to design, build, and manage a portfolio.

You can receive 28 PDUs (Professional Development Units) from this four-day course.
