Successful portfolio management in times of crisis
In a time, where scaling down is a reality for many, this virtual mini course dives deeper into portfolio management. Following the crisis, many organisations will restart their projects and ask themselves: What do we need to be aware of and how do we identify which projects to restart? After participating in this course, you will be ready to take the first concrete steps to ensure successful portfolio management.
How is it done in real life?
Effective portfolio management is essential in achieving strategic goals for an organisation. A certain level of project maturity is required, and it is critical to understand what project maturity in an organisation is, and how is it characterised.
In this mini course, we will introduce concrete tools to help you decide which projects should be continued or initiated. Further, we will provide a short introduction on how to assess, select and maintain your project portfolio.
You will encounter two of Mannaz’ most experienced consultants within this field. Hans Arnbjerg has designed several project offices and is an expert in portfolio management. Henrik Bjerregaard is a consultant in project management and has many years of operational experience within portfolio management in production units, oil and gas, construction, and shipping industries.
Who can attend?
This course will help you ensure that your organisation continues the right projects, while maintaining a healthy balance across all active projects.
The course is primarily intended for experienced project managers and leaders of project managers in the public or private sector, including NGO’s. It is also relevant for those leading or working for a PMO, and those selecting and maintaining projects in your organisation.
