Aspire Europe Course Summary

Aspire Europe offer a range of training solutions to support organisations in delivering their change effectively, many of our courses offer formal qualifications that are unique to Aspire Europe Ltd to help motivate and recognise the achievements of your teams.

Training is only one element of raising your capability and improving performance, the proof of the pudding is whether the new skills and knowledge is put into action back in the business. A maturity assessment to identify your strengths and weaknesses and using training as a vehicle to underpin improvements is an essential element of the improvement mix. We can offer a skills matrix for each of the key roles in change to help you target your training, and can conduct a maturity assessment using P3M3® to provide you with a baseline.

Developing Programme Management Frameworks

No organisation can successfully deliver programmes and projects without an effective framework. Our work on developing the maturity model P3M3® and undertaking assessments of over 100 organisations enabled us to review a wide range of processes, guidance and tools that are used across a range of sectors.

We found:

  • Incomplete frameworks with inadequate lifecycles
  • Frameworks that replicate manuals and basic theory but add no value
  • Roles and responsibilities that are generic, confusing or conflicting
  • Themes, such as risk, that are not connected to the lifecycle or sit in isolation
  • Generic role definitions with no application of the responsibilities
  • Templates that bear no resemblance to the lifecycle or processes
  • Little connection between programme and project management systems
  • Portfolio Management frameworks that fail to address balancing priorities

To overcome this we developed our own Align Framework® and offer it as a fully supported package. If you would like to find out more about the Align Framework®, click here
