Organisations striving to be number one in their space recognise the need to pivot to the shifting currents and trends in their industries.  Increasingly, modern organisations need to be more Lean, Agile, and adaptable to stay relevant and stay ahead of the competition.  This requires an adaptable mindset and a set of practices across the entire spectrum of an organisation's capabilities.  In particular, the planning and decision making capabilities of an organisation need to become as adaptable as their ability to produce and deliver.  Getting all of these elements to work together seamlessly and sustainably takes more than education; it takes leadership, initiative, commitment and a plan.   

The PMO Programme and Portfolio Workshop transfers what you have learned about Lean, Agile, and Project Management and applies a proven Strategy Execution technique to build an adoption plan for this exciting technique.  Whether participants are planning to use Lean and Agile PMO Programme and Portfolio management for a mission-critical project, seeking recovery for a troubled project or orchestrating a complex problem, the resultant adoption plan acts as a road map that provides greater agility, flexibility, and value delivery for their organisation.  

The three day Workshop is an intensive and highly-facilitated planning session using a wall-based methodology. The workshop is led by a Strategy Execution expert facilitator and equips participants with the skills and techniques needed to craft an accurate, measurable, valuable and relevant plan for any PMO Programme and Portfolio implementation initiative.
