So what is Portfolio, Programme and Project Management all about? Most of us have a broadly similar definition of a project based on key characteristics such as being non-routine, time limited and designed to achieve specific outcomes.
The definitions get more complex – and somewhat contradictory – after this since the Office of Government Commerce defines a programme as:
the co-ordinated management of a portfolio of projects…
whereas other sources would define a portfolio as the management of a set of programmes. Many people refer to senior managers having a portfolio of responsibility without necessarily thinking of it in terms of related projects and programmes.
A comprehensive standardised approach to project management. Our highly participative workshops will introduce tools from across the spectrum of JISC infoNet’s range of much used and highly thought of resources to show how they fit together to give organisations a way to identify and then resolve issues whilst minimising resistance and maximising effect.
