Portfolio and Program Management
The difference between a successful and unsuccessful organization is often a clear sense of mission and purpose: having everybody pull for and focus on your ultimate objectives. Many high-level project managers face organization-level issues with no awareness of the sea- change between a systems and a project approach. Palatine's Portfolio and Program Management
simulation teaches those project managers to think from the top.
This intensive workshop extends beyond the boundaries of a single project and into the complex and ambiguous world of managing multiple projects. In small management teams of 4-5, participants manage concurrent projects within the framework of their organization's strategy and goals. They compete for project priority, visibility and business resources, while they share and negotiate for the benefit of the entire organization. This workshop provides a rich learning laboratory to practice and improve enterprise, multi-project thinking. Participants must balance the organizational goals of business performance and customer satisfaction, while they build organizational capability and the human capital of the enterprise.
This highly experiential, custom-designed simulation workshop integrates management tasks and processes and covers such skills as strategic and tactical planning as participants are grouped into small management teams to plan and manage a company over a 2-3 year period. Decisions are gathered and analyzed. Team members juggle operations, vendors, personnel, markets, competitors, and typical problems, and perform budgeting and what-if scenarios. Participants create business plans and budgets, integrating strategy with execution, and addressing the long-term impact of decisions.
