IT is one of the biggest expenses for most organisations. IT departments are among the most expensive out there, and all major (and most minor) organisations have to think very strategically about how they manage and achieve business critical IT objectives. A study by McKinsey recently found that one in six IT projects studied had a cost overrun of 200%, on average, and a schedule over-run of almost 70%.
Programme management enables managers to oversee multiple concurrent projects, enabling benefits that can not be seen when managing projects individually. This masterclass led by Michel Thiry, international keynote and authority on project, programme and value, will show you why Programme Management as supported by the UK Government can ensure that you deliver all your projects with a maximum success rate. This masterclass is designed for executives and senior managers whose organisation or department uses project management; CIOs, chief project officers, programme and project sponsors and directors, experienced programme managers and all managers who need to manage multiple interrelated projects to deliver business strategies in any industry sector.
