ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Leading organizations across sectors and geographic borders have been steadily embracing project management as a way to control spending and improve project results. When the recession began, this practice became even more important. Executives discovered that adhering to project management methods and strategies reduced risks, cut costs and improved success rates—all vital to surviving the economic crisis.

This is how the Project Management Institute describes the importance of Project Management in all organizations, and even in uncertain and risky times like in contemporary economy.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT MATTERS. Although this seems to be an evident truth, and although many organizations state that they do work with project management principles and strategies, it is still true that:

  • For some companies, some established PM processes are in place, but no monitoring or evaluation are foreseen*
  • PM is rarely aligned with organization’s objectives*
  • The challenges that most PMs emphasize tend to be poor practice, bad planning and bad management decisions*

(*from Axelos_PPM Benchmarking Report 2017)

Furthermore, Project Managers interviewed for the Axelos PPM Benchmarking Report 2017 highlight some of the issues that commonly led to project failure:

  • PMs often found themselves handling a project that couldn’t be delivered in the timeframe,
  • PMs witnessed significant changes to the project brief,
  • PMs stated the risks were not properly understood,
  • PMs felt their project didn’t have the right people in place.

These data underline clearly how Project Management, despite the common understanding of the its importance, still needs to have more dedicated investments in order to really deliver value for the organizations.

STRUCTURE OF THE CONFERENCE

This yearly Project Management conference will include 3 case studies from Belgian organizations that are implementing Project Management and the presentation of a subject matter expert, trainer and consultant, on the theoretical framework and PM methods. Furthermore, there will be a Q&A session for the audience to ask more in depth details about the scenarios presented, as well as a great networking moment with welcome coffee buffet and walking cocktails.

First confirmed speakers:

  • Mr Fabrice Antoine, Directeur Général Adjoint du département Exploitation at ETNIC, partenaire informatique de la Fédération Wallonie Bruxelles.
  • Ms Adriana Bancianu, Senior Manager at Deloitte Global Tax Center
  • Mr Georges de Wasseige, PRINCE2 and Change Management Trainer and Consultant at QRP International.

Time: 18.00 Location: Brussels Type: Conference Language:

The Public Administration world is in full change and looking for support and aid to successfully complete their ideas and projects.

QRP International has developed itself as an information provider towards the public sector and has built credibility on informing and supporting the public sector in their search to improve their project management practices.

PRINCE2 is perfectly placed to be a solution for the public sector as it is originated from the (British) Public Sector. The solutions that are provided within the Best practice framework are made by PA and are meant to be used by PA.
The conference P3 for PA stands for Projects, Programmes and Portfolio’s within Public Adminstration.

The conference has two objectives:

  • Reward loyal PA clients by holding an exclusive preview of the company services and by creating networking opportunities
  • Offer the chance to the PA clients to benchmark and learn from the people they meet and the presentations they follow.

We are proud to be sponsored by Axelos Global Best Practice for this P3 for PA event: AXELOS is responsible for developing, enhancing and promoting a number of best practice methodologies used globally by professionals working primarily in project, programme and portfolio management, IT service management and cyber resilience.

The methodologies, including ITIL, PRINCE2, MSP and the new collection of cyber resilience best practice products, RESILIA, are adopted by private, public and voluntary sectors in more than 150 countries to improve employees’ skills, knowledge and competence in order to make both individuals and organizations work more effectively.

SPEAKERS OF THE CONFERENCE

  • AFMPS (Agence Fédérale des Médicaments et Produits de Santé) – Mr. MAHY Didier, Executive Projects & Portfolio Management Officer, “La gestion et le suivi de projets au sein de l’AFMPS: Mise en place d’un PPMO (Projects & Portfolio Management Office)”

What is the role, mission and expectations related to the implementation of a PMO within a Public Service such as the Agence Fédérale des Médicaments et Produits de Santé? What are the methods and means? And what are the results of the implementation of the PMO and what improvements still need to be made?

  • SMALS – Mr. Tom Van Medegael, Project Management Officer “PRINCE2 @Smals: Best Practices & lessons learned”:

In 2016, Smals made the switch from a PMBOK-based to a PRINCE2-based project management framework. This step has created a strong momentum for both internal (software development + IT infrastructure) and external management, in order to follow a common public-sector project management process. In 2017 SMALS achieved a maturity with a good potential for further synergies within the sector. A number of best practices and lessons learned will be discussed during the presentation.
