By choosing the right projects and making sure that there are resources to complete them,
organizations gain competitive advantage. But with limited resources and an over-abundance
project opportunities, organizations and their project management offices struggle in project
and program identification, selection, execution and benefits realization.
In this course, you’ll review the differences associated with managing an individual project, a
set of related projects, and a portfolio made up of different projects. You’ll use project selection
scoring techniques and cull “problem” projects. You’ll develop strategies to deal with resource
constraints. You’ll also learn how to prepare executive briefs on performance at the portfolio
level and how to define, track, and report benefits for deliverables.
Who should attend:
Experienced project managers who want to advance their careers, program
managers, PMO directors, CIO’s, and business leaders responsible for the strategic selection of projects.
How you will benefit:
- Achieve strategic business objectives by selecting the right projects at the right time
- Gain better throughput across all projects with clear priorities, a clear understanding of resource capacity, and the right staging of projects within a program or portfolio
- Improve decision making about individual projects using a project portfolio context
- Link projects to various financial facets and increase accountability
