With a theme of shaping your portfolio to realise organisation strategy we are excited to announce the following presentation topics and synopses:
Tanya Durlen & Tim Ellis
HS2’s strategic approach to managing a combined portfolio of organisation creation, infrastructure development and delivery, as well as the integration of wider benefit and regeneration initiatives
Portfolio management in the government sector - the ONS journey
Nicky's presentation will talk about how and why portfolio management was established in ONS 4 years ago, the quick wins and early challenges.
She will talk about how the portfolio is prioritised and ranked in terms of strategic contribution. The presentation will also cover the stages in maturity and what ONS has done to build maturity in developing areas.
Nicky will also cover all the initiatives taken to develop the project delivery profession in ONS and the impact this is having, as well as the on-going challenges as we start the new SR period with a major investment in transformation. (back to top)
Tanya and Tim will present an account of the journey to develop portfolio management in Surface Transport, integrating elements from a number of approaches in an innovative way to develop portfolio management as a strategic discipline. There will also be some reflections of the development of portfolio management across Transport for London and the wider transport sector. (back to top)
Terri's presentation will look at the Major Projects on the Governments Major Projects Portfolio and what the information collated and analysed by the Infrastructure and Projects Authority is beginning to highlight about areas where further focus and improvement is needed to improve the likelihood of successful delivery.
Dan’s presentation will focus on the process of project selection at Nationwide and how the high level of demand is rationalised into an approved portfolio.
The presentation will look at how demand is compared to corporate objectives and show some of the tools that have been developed to analyse and communicate the portfolio landscape. Some of the behavioural challenges presented by portfolio selection are covered with strategies to limit their effect.
The presentation will conclude with a look at future improvements to their process and a summary of Nationwide’s lessons learned and suggested advice for delegates. (back to top)
This presentation will explore the processes and pitfalls involved with establishing portfolio management within a large infrastructure organisation showing specific examples of what can be achieved and the lessons that were learned on the way.
Three key areas will be highlighted:
(i) getting the mandate approved
(ii) defining the blueprint and
(iii) establishing measures of success.
The journey has not been straightforward, with some of the team wanting to go fire-fighting, and others preferring to manage through good governance and assurance - how did this turn out and at what stage were the team able to declare “operational status”? (back to top)
