Preparing for projects in a Post-Pandemic World webinar series



A topsy-turvy world requires thinking that challenges the status quo and seeks smarter ways of deploying the well-known portfolio management mantra of ‘doing the right things’. This will fire your imagination.

As the world economies struggle to recover from the global COVID pandemic, organisations of all sizes will need to focus on core activity and the selection of initiatives that provide the most value towards business objectives and ultimately strategic goals. However, post pandemic factors are at play that will limit achievement of success. This presentation on Wednesday 6 May 2020 offered research, perspectives and challenges together with some suggested solutions that should be considered and acted upon.
