Why Choose this Training Course?
Portfolio management provides an opportunity for a governing body to make decisions that control or influence the direction of a group of projects, programs, and on-going work as they work to achieve specific outcomes. Portfolio management is important to help selecting the “right” project mix, while program and project management help managing them in a “right” way.
