Event Details

Organizational Project Management (OPM) is defined as the execution of an organization's strategies through projects by combining the systems of portfolio management, program management, and project management.

OPM is based on the idea that there is a correlation between an organization’s capabilities in project, program, and portfolio management, and the organization’s effectiveness in implementing its strategy. The goal of an organization’s strategy is the translation of its vision and mission into specific actions that will deliver maximum value to its stakeholders, including donors and beneficiaries. Achieving the strategy ensures continued growth in development results and sustainable competitive advantage. This is especially true in today’s increasingly competitive global environment, where organizations are constantly seeking ways to improve their capabilities and performance in the delivery of their strategy.

The goal of OPM is to ensure that the organization is doing the right projects and that projects are doing the right things.

This is an advanced course on the concepts, process, and methods required to ensure that all projects and programs are aligned with the organization’s development goals. OPM is a flexible framework that facilitates the integration of all projects and programs to support the organization's development goals. This course is especially useful for anyone working in a development organization that is seeking to improve the delivery of project, program and ensure they are aligned with the strategic objectives, this course is particularly beneficial for organizations that do not have a unified project management approach and those in the process of improving or sustaining their current project management framework. The course is based on the international standard from the Project Management Institute (PMI)

The curse is based on the international standard from the Project Management Institute (PMI)
