About the training

Modern project management begins even before the actual project begins, with active management of the preliminary phase. This includes demand management, which records a fundamental need under a transparent process. Essential projects are extracted through various detailing and decision-making stages and made ready for project implementation. This results in the project portfolio, which is used for various planning purposes and budgeting activities. Based on the project portfolio, implementable projects are then launched at the proper time.


You‘ll be able to design and manage, within complex environments, processes and methods for demand and portfolio management.
