Seminar Description

Organizations that adopt projects as a means to achieving change and delivering results often find it difficult to prioritize projects and to make best use of their resources. Many recent surveys have demonstrated that project backlog is a major issue in organizations. Portfolio management is an approach that aims to align project efforts with the corporate strategy and optimize the efficient use of resources throughout the organization. This course focuses on two aspects of the management of portfolios:

  1. The prioritization of projects and other activities, based on their contribution to organizational benefits and their achievability
  2. The allocation and prioritizing of resources between those critical projects and activities in order to deliver the expected benefits

This seminar is designed for experienced project managers, portfolio managers, chief project officers, project directors and senior managers who need to assign resources to projects to deliver corporate strategies. 


What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:  

  • Recognize why, when and how to use portfolio management
  • Identify strategies for aligning projects with organizational objectives and strategic goals  
  • Actively manage business value within a governance framework
  • Demonstrate capability to analyze and prioritize organizational initiatives
  • Effectively assign and optimize resources to ensure the delivery of project and organizational benefits 
  • Support the development of a portfolio framework and culture
