This workshop will provide senior managers and others responsible for the direction and governance of projects, programs and portfolios with the resources need to be effective in this role. The workshop is built around ISO 21505 Project, programme and portfolio management - Guidance on governance, and the APM GoPM workbook - Directing Change, a guide to governance of project management, published by the Association for Project Management, UK. Supporting information is drawn from a wide range of international resources.
Governance and management are different concepts, the role of governance is to set 'the rules' and objectives for an organisation or entity, the role of management is to work within the 'rules' to achieve the objectives. Attendees will work through the six functions of governance defined by Dr. Lynda Bourne and understand how these interact with the five functions of management defined by Henri Fayol. The objective of this workshop is to provide senior managers with an overview of the principles of effective project governance, the quantifiable benefits obtained from effective project governance (based on work by KPMG and PWC), and a tool kit/reference system that can be used to source relevant information when needed in the future.
Who should attend: Senior Managers and project/program Sponsors.
Mosaic has been conducting project management workshops since 1986 - see what our trainees have to say. Our governance workshops are conducted by Patrick Weaver, he is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, and lead the Australian input to the development of ISO 21050. Within the ISO working group, he lead the team developing clauses 3 (Context) and 4 (Governance of projects, programmes and portfolios) of the standard. This unique knowledge and interest in the practical application of governance to projects, programs and portfolios has informed the development of this workshop - see Patrick's CV.
GoPM defines the 11 key principles of an effective governance system covered in this workshop:-
Duration: 1 Day or 1/2 Day
This workshop describes the context in which the governance of projects, programmes and portfolios is conducted and provides guidance for their governance. It is intended for governing bodies and executive and senior management who influence, impact or make decisions regarding the governance of projects, programs and portfolios. It is also intended to provide guidance to those who direct projects, programmes and portfolios, such as sponsors, steering committees, portfolio owners and the project management office. The workshop is intended to work as an interactive two-way discussion forum for the exchange on knowledge. This workshop can be incorporated into our Advanced Project Management Master Class (2 or 3 days) or combined with Successful Project Sponsorship - The critical role of the Senior Responsible Owner (1 day total).
The workshop demonstrates typical outputs from project and program management systems that support the achievement of the GoPM principles. The ‘typical conforming systems / outputs’ are drawn from several sources.
