SPM... Of Course It's Strategic!

How to incorporate strategic portfolio management into your PMO

Live webinar with Deborah Yates & Stuart Easton

13 SEPTEMBER 2023 @ 8:00 AM PDT | 11:00 AM EDT | 4:00 PM BST 

PMOs are now venturing into the realm of strategic portfolio management (SPM). In this engaging session, we'll delve into the following topics:

  • How is SPM different from other types of portfolio management?
  • What value does SPM bring to the organization?
  • How do you help your organization determine the best ways to evolve to a strategic management PMO?

One systemic issue we'll discuss is using strategic alignment as a criteria for prioritization. It is very easy to say, “yes, it’s strategic” but part of governance is to ensure we know how it is aligned – up through initiatives, strategies, goals using actual measurements.

And what about projects that provide other value to the organisation that is not strategic? Exploring why value needs to be a major component of the prioritization process to build a rounded portfolio, Deborah will explain how to seamlessly integrate strategic portfolio management into your PMO!

If you can't make it to the live webinar, that's no problem - register anyway and we'll send you a recording of the session.
