About the course

Doing the right projects and doing the projects right.

Project management is increasingly being recognised as a mechanism for the implementation of strategy. Organisations are undertaking many projects concurrently to provide linkage between strategy and real organisational change.

Portfolio management focuses on the selection and prioritisation of projects to ensure that an organisation’s best resources are working on its most important undertakings.

Programme management provides organisational oversight, coordination and support of multiple projects to ensure that the portfolio is well-managed and to maximise the success rate of individual projects.
