Project Management

Public Servants are faced with increasing expectations, shifting priorities as well as an increasingly complex, ambiguous and uncertain environment. Delivering government strategy requires a capability in project, programme and portfolio management.

This one-day Fundamentals of Programme Management in Government focuses on the unique challenges and opportunities of delivering complex programmes in the public sector. It draws on the unique insight and networks that the IPA brings to public sector project and programme management.

In addition to the management and co-ordination of multiple projects within a programme, programme management aligns projects with the organisation’s goals, maximises project performance and minimises risk. Course content is aligned with the PMI® The Standard for Program Management – Fourth Edition (2017). This is the definitive guide for individuals and organisations wishing to develop their programme management practices.
