Portfolio Management Insight

Portfolio Management involves the collection in one place of relevant information about the organisation’s investment initiatives including programmes and projects and aligning their delivery with strategic objectives, business requirements and the organisation’s capability, capacity (to deliver change and adopt change) and maturity.

There are many examples of organisations improving performance through the adoption of a structured approach to managing their portfolio. Why not have a read about how BT Design used P3O® to create a Centre of Excellence by reading this case study from AXELOS

If you would like something more interactive, this lecture discusses some key principles in strategic portfolio management, prioritising your portfolio, framing and better decision making.

The Benefits of Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices

A P3O® model provides the structure, governance, functions and services required for defining a balanced portfolio of change and ensuring consistent delivery of programmes and projects across an organization or department. It could successfully take many forms, all of which are explored within the P3O® guidance – from a single all-encompassing physical office to a complex model made up of a permanent Portfolio Office supported by permanent hubs and temporary Programme/Project Offices.

P3O® Combined Only £1250!!! (Usually £1500) 19-23rd January 2015

Book by the end of November – and receive our MoP® Foundation Interactive Learning License FREE! (License valid for 12 months upon completion of your course)

The course takes place in our Bath training centre. Our location offers small group numbers (max 8) enabling us to provide a flexible and personalised face-to-face training experience.

Who is it for?

This course is ideal for any staff involved in P3O® roles who wish to gain a qualification, for example:

  • Head of P3O® (Portfolio Office, Programme Office or Centre of Excellence)
  • Portfolio, Programme or Project Office staff
  • Portfolio, Programme or Project staff looking to work within a P3O® model

The first 3 days of this course are intense and practical experience of working in a P3O® model is an advantage, although not essential. For more information, click here for the course outline.

PMI report on PMO Frameworks

PMI-Pulse-Profession-PMO-Frameworks

In this blog we have included a paper issued by the PMI as part of their Pulse of the Profession series.

This report is the result of a global survey into the status of PMO (Portfolio Offices) maturity, and it has identified that many have a number of fundamental weaknesses.

This is complimenting Aspire Europe research and results from 4 years of P3M3 maturity assessments, which is showing most organisations being at a surprisingly low level of maturity.

It was the weakness of the majority of organisations frameworks that led to Aspire Europe developing the Align Framework to provide an off the shelf product to address the management framework challenges that most organisations are suffering from, for more information on the Aspire Europe Align Framework please visit http://www.alignframework.com/
