Southern | Building a Scorecard to Help Prioritise Initiatives – 20th September

A new location for Tuesday 20th September 2016, Southampton and this evening’s event is hosted by Carnival UK, a market leader in the cruise industry, operating ships all over the world. They’re most widely recognised by famous brand names P&O Cruises and Cunard Line.

If PMO within this type of organisation isn’t interesting enough we’ll be focusing on the Portfolio PMO specifically and looking at Building a Scorecard to Help Prioritise Initiatives

In portfolio management and the Portfolio PMO there is a focus on doing the right projects and programmes inline with the organisation’s strategy. When it comes to initiatives, the Portfolio PMO has a role to play in supporting an organisation’s prioritisation of them.

So how far ahead does your Portfolio PMO do this? A year out, two, three? More?

Unfortunately we all recognise that businesses don’t tend to think that far ahead about the what or how, outcomes or problems which they are trying to solve and end benefits.

Does your Portfolio PMO struggle with this? Is prioritising initiatives just a catchy heading with nothing of substance behind it?

Do you also have the problem of marrying together the financial planning process of the business who are mainly concerned with the numbers whilst your PMO are trying to focus on the delivery AND the numbers?

So the idea for this PMO Flashmob is to share the challenges, successes, scorecards and stories that you and others have as you try to guide the business through this or have gone through this already.

The event takes place at:

Carnival UK
Carnival House – 4 Pacific West
100 Harbour Parade
Southampton
Hampshire
SO15 1ST

The session starts at 6pm for 6.30pm, finishing around 8pm and further time to network and chat at a local hostelry.
