This class will provide in-depth instruction on nine techniques for improving the performance of project portfolios, helping you drive up the throughput of reliable project completions by 2X or more.  The techniques are the highest-impact ones selected from proven methods, including Critical Chain, Agile, and Lean, integrated harmoniously into a single, best-tool-for-the-job Project Portfolio Management (PPM) framework.

Games, simulations, and real-world examples of dramatic performance improvements will help you retain the knowledge gained, and enable you to apply these techniques on the job.  In addition to a printed copy of all training materials, all registered attendees will also receive a signed copy of the instructor's book, The CIO's Guide to Breakthrough Project Portfolio Performance, which goes into additional depth on the nine techniques presented in the class.  Note that, while targeted at IT project portfolios, all techniques are relevant to all project-centric domains, not just IT.

PMP-certified participants will earn 8 PDUs upon successful completion of this full-day class.  Lunch will be provided.  Within 3 blocks of Metro Center, Farragut West, Farragut North, and McPherson Square metro stops.  Multiple commercial parking garages nearby, charging $22-30/day.

This course will be co-instructed by Dr. Bahadir Inozu and Mr. Mike Hannan.
