Logo-Virtual Course, A live workshop powered by PDMA, SPM Workshop, March 17 & 24 2021
Strategic Portfolio Management Workshop

A LIVE WORKSHOP POWERED BY PDMA

March 17 & 24, 20201 |11:00 AM – 3:00 PM EST

Due to high demand, PDMA is offering another opportunity to take Part I of this workshop. Part II (April 22 & 29) will focus on implications to your organization, a gap analysis, additional practices responding to the gaps and developing a roadmap for you and your organization. Please note that Part II will only be available to those that take Part I.

Key Takeaways 

  1. Principles of Strategic Portfolio Management and how they apply to your organization.
  2. Assessment of your current portfolio power and how to increase its ability to drive growth.
  3. A “to be” state for your SPM process and roadmap to get there.
