The project manager must have an excellent understanding of how his/her project aligns with the organisation’s strategy and overall objectives, and how the project is connected to the management of a broader program and portfolio of projects which compete for organisational resources. There are important relationships between the business strategy and the projects, programs and portfolios managed by the organisation. It is critical to have a structured process to decide how individual projects are selected for implementation, and how their benefits will be captured and evaluated.

This course shows how a project or program develops out of the business lifecycle and also feeds into that lifecycle. This course provides participants with an advanced understanding of a body of knowledge in regard to portfolio and program management as applied in professional practice. It also details contemporary program and portfolio management approaches and practically relates them to organisational dynamics and project benefits realization.
