Seminar Description

In this fast-paced, interactive workshop, participants will use data from their organization assessment as a backdrop to review the keys to creating and sustaining a successful project environment.  Creating a best-in-class project organization requires attention to a number of interdependent factors which, taken together, form the basis for sustainable project success.  
This workshop is designed to enable participants to understand and apply success factors to achieve ongoing project excellence. Using an organization self-assessment along with insights gained from peers in similar situations, participants will identify specific actions to can take to transition their organizations. The course effectively addresses the elements that differentiate successful project- focused organizations, with or without a PMO: the use of process, technology, people, governance and culture, all coming together in a way that results in capable and consistent project performance that is measurable, predictable and sustainable.
