Mastering Portfolios, Programmes & Projects

Using Projects to Deliver Strategic Objectives 

Both public and private sector organizations need to be resilient enough to withstand pressures from today’s ever changing fast paced environment. Such pressures include increased competition and cost pressures due to globalization and the digital economy. Resilience may be achieved by supporting operational activities with tactical initiatives that are prompted from longer-term or strategic planning. Strategic objectives help to maintain competitive advantage. However, how does an organization manage the delivery of strategic goals? How can strategic goals be aligned with work results? Even if we produce the defined results, how can we ensure that those outputs produce the outcomes that realize strategic value?

One approach that serves to answer the above questions is through the establishment of a governance structure that clearly identifies future needs and supports the selection, management, control and measurement of strategic initiatives. This governance structure is based upon three pillars: portfolios, programmes and projects. This training course explains what these three pillars involve and how they are used to align strategic objectives with project deliverables in order to achieve the competitive improvements required in an organization’s operations.  

This training will include:

  • Examination of effective governance mechanisms to support planning, execution (change) and performance management
  • Portfolio management
  • Programme and project alignment and management
  • Effective measurement and reporting mechanisms
  • Verification of project, programme and strategic goals


Impact to you and your Organization:

  • Apply governance mechanisms to achieve key outcomes through project deliverables
  • Compose effective dashboards and scorecards to report project performance
  • Align strategic goals with project implementation through effective chartering techniques
  • Apply generally accepted project management techniques to establish an integrated project plan baseline
  • Measure, forecast, present status and control project performance using proactive change management
