Course description

Adaptive Program and Portfolio Management

How do you decide which initiatives to invest in, how much to invest, and when to stop investing?

In today’s fast-paced business environment there is a need for an adaptive, responsive approach to managing the pipeline of work to be done, constantly measuring the investment against the potential and actual returns and rapidly changing direction without disrupting the flow of the organization.

Our Adaptive Program and Portfolio Management course looks at enterprise value management in the context of portfolios and programs – how do we ensure the organization's resources are being spent in the most effective way, that people are doing things that are most important to the organization, and that interwoven streams of work are delivered successfully?

This dual accredited course draws on ideas from the latest thinking, blends these with tried and proven techniques and will provide you with tools and techniques to ensure you are able to help maximize value returned to their organization.

This course can also be offered virtually. Contact SoftEd to learn more about delivery options.
