What is Programme and Portfolio Management about?
It is important to understand the differences between both Programmes and the organisation Portfolio, in terms of selecting and prioritising projects to be undertaken and managing both processes to work and support each other. How can we ensure we understand which management techniques need to be applied, and when? How can we recognise if projects share common benefits for the organisation, and if so, which tools and techniques should be used to manage these projects?
Using best practice Programme Management and techniques from the Project Management Institute (PMI) and The Association for Project Management (APM), this, and more can be gained by understanding the use of Programme Management techniques to ensure that groups of projects who share a common objective can be managed effectively. The effective e management of programme interdependencies, programme-level risks and programme resourcing needs and techniques are explored, and the benefits reviewed.
