Doing projects the right way, but finding out afterwards that they do not contribute to business objectives will not be seen as a success, especially from a business point of view. What is more important amongst Project, Programme and Portfolio Management to improve success rate of projects in your organization? We asked three of our key Trainers and Consultants to answer this question, in order to provide you with a clear overview of the possible approaches you can choose from when implementating Projects, Programmes and Portfolios.

    Hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games is, quite simply, a mammoth task. By the time of the Opening Ceremony at least 100,000 people will be working on the Games, including 3,000 staff, 70,000 volunteers and large numbers of contractors. With a public sector funding package worth £9.298 billion, it is imperative for Britain’s reputation nationally and internationally that the Games are delivered successfully. But it’s the legacy of the Games that will inform opinion on success or otherwise in the longer term. Although the methodology Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®) is used throughout the organization, this is a programme on a scale far bigger than any MSP training can prepare you for. How do the programme managers working on the Olympics manage something this big?

    De project manager (en de programma of portfolio manager) is een veranderaar, die verandering of innovatie doorvoert om een andere toekomst te creëren. Het is het werk van de project manager een nieuwe toekomst te verbeelden en hoe die te realiseren. In verbeelding reizen we in de tijd.
