I've been invited to speak at APMG-India's launch conference across three cities next week. The organisers have asked me to speak on P3O (Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices) which I delighted to do. I'm agreat fan of this management guidance. It has helped me an others make sense of an otherwise confusing management landscape - how to control and make agile timely decisions at a senior level across a complex mix of projects and programmes.
I'll be using the metaphor of a backbone (hence the diagram). We have found clients can exploit a P3O framework to support the frame of the 'change investment' - all the projects and programmes that are happening - as well as using it as a conduit vital and immediate central nervous system supporting timely decision-making.
If there is anybody reading this that will be there, please come and say, "Hello'" to me.
The Conference runs from Tuesday evening in Bangalore, then Mumbai, finishing on Friday evening in Delhi. Will I get a Tour T-shirt at the end with the dates and cities printed on the back, I wonder? :)
