Did you know…

There are around 49 processes in project management that use over 1,000 combinations of techniques and tools depending on the project*? On average a Project Manager knows only 10 techniques and tools**.

How many techniques and tools do you know? How about your project managers and teams? Are they used consistently across projects? Are the right techniques and tools being used at the right time? And are they contributing to successful outcomes for projects, programs, and portfolios (PPP)?

In this two-day class, we explore how Techniques and Tools (T&Ts) contribute to success across projects, programs, and portfolios and PMOs and how the PMO can add value to the organisation by gaining expertise in T&Ts.

The class presents a clear method to establish an in-depth understanding of what exactly is a technique and a tool and how they are identified, selected, adapted, and utilised to increase the chances of PMO, project, program and portfolio success.

The class content has an underlying theme of Techniques and Tools applied to different contexts to promote understanding and create impact across projects, programs, portfolios and PMOs. It also presents the AIPMO Techniques and Tools Lifecycle FrameworkTM for the first time which provides a structured approach to increasing an organisation’s techniques and tools maturity.

Throughout the class, references will be made to your environment to encourage discussions that can help to address and/or put into perspective your daily challenges. The course is a mixture of instructor-led and participative activities where the delegates engage in interactive exercises.

This is a unique course and will provide insights that have never been shared before as they will be part of the upcoming AIPMO Techniques & Tools book. Attendees will be able to share and discuss ideas based on new knowledge.
