APM Portfolio Management SIG and
Programme Management SIG conference 2022

Successful delivery in the midst of rapid change

The world today is changing at an astonishing rate, but do organisations have the right programmes and portfolios to help deliver effectively amidst all these changes? Climate change, increasing social and political upheaval, new ways of working via technology and effects of COVID-19 means that the fundamental approach to programme and portfolio delivery has to reflect the new world. How do we learn from recent events to set ourselves up to deliver the change of the future?

How do we make best use of technology, tools and techniques to support us in delivery?

Given the new mix of ways of working, do we have the right people, skills and behaviours to collaborate effectively?

How are we adapting the ways we govern, plan and deliver our programmes and portfolios?

This conference is going to be another world class event in sharing best practice, real life experience and promoting thought leadership – with takeaways for everyone to use in programmes and portfolios.

We look forward to welcoming you to what promises to be a thought provoking, empowering and valuable day.
