Description:Advanced Project Management - Oxford University Short Course
Location:Oxford, Department for Continuing Education, Rewley House, United Kingdom
Subject:This course will introduce Project Portfolio Management (PPM) as a framework for improving an organization's ability to effectively deliver science and technology projects on time, on budget and to specification. This involves not only effective project management discipline, but also ensuring that the organization is selecting, prioritizing and investing in the right portfolio of projects in the first place, optimizing resource allocation between them, and monitoring them throughout the entire project life-cycle through to delivery. The objective is to offer a condensed, yet comprehensive overview of current and emerging best-practice methodologies and techniques for meeting the challenges of managing multiple, complex science and technology projects. In particular, through case studies and workshop exercises, we will examine the following: - Projects as vehicles for delivering strategic objectives - Projects, Programmes and Portfolios: The Integrated Project System - Roles and Responsibilities of the PMO: Organization Design for Project Success - Project Portfolio Management (PPM) Process: Selection, Prioritization, Optimization, Metrics - Project Challenges for Ś‘Little ScienceŚ’ and Ś‘Big ScienceŚ’: From start-ups to major programmes [gemŐ_ŐŔ den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information] The web site is no longer available.
