DVT and Eluminary will be hosting an executive seminar on next-generation project and portfolio management on Wednesday, 24 October 2012 at the Sandton Sun in Johannesburg, and on Friday, 26 October 2012 at Victoria Junction in Cape Town. The event is designed to give delegates insight into how Enterprise Project Management, Prince2 and Agile methodologies are lowering costs, improving profitability and stimulating innovation in organisations around the world.

The event is titled The PPPM Effect, with the acronym referring to process, portfolio and project management.

“Process is what drives project effectiveness and reduces costs—it’s the new frontier of project management,” comments Kevin Naicker, who heads up DVT’s Project Management business. “The event is designed to help delegates understand where their organisations are on the project management maturity curve, and how progressing along the curve can drive both innovation and organisational efficiencies.”

During the morning session, keynotes from Emeritus Professor Ken MacGregor, chief technology officer of Eluminary; Kevin Naicker and Guy Eastoe, MD: Snap-Tech, an accredited APMG training provider, will focus on the role of project management in transforming the enterprise, and how to realise benefits.

Three optional afternoon breakaway sessions will focus respectively on InSpec, Agile and Prince2. These sessions will be structured as workshops for a maximum of 15 guests to discuss prepared topics submitted by delegates in advance. The delegates will get a unique opportunity to collaborate and share challenges, thought-process and lessons learned—and leave with new mindsets and ideas on how they can transform their respective work environments.

“This is a must-attend event for decision-makers and practitioners in project management, from COOs and CIOs to process and business architects,” says Naicker. “Successful projects are vital to an organisation’s ability to achieve its strategic goals—come and learn how to use process effectively to help ensure projects deliver planned business benefits on time and on budget.”
