Training description

At the beginning, our lecture will teach recognition of the project, program and portfolio, which terms are often confused even in some academic management lectures. The management environment should be treated as part of the maturity of any organization or even a country that should be able to effectively carry out projects, programs and a portfolio of necessary change. Every organization can (and should!) regularly undergo assessment of their potential of project, program and portfolio implementation, and then initiate actions to improve.

Douring training you will see what are the principles, themes and processes of the program, and how they are interrelated. You'll get to know the important differences betweem program and the project. And why, when instead program approach we use the project frames, our initiative is most likely to fail.

In addition to the necessary theory to pass exam, we will try to convince participants that the MSP is a practical tool. Therefore we will familiarize participants with some emerging program in the country Elandia. The E-elandia program funded by the EU (European Electronic) was designed to replace the traditional model of parliamentary democracy, the Athenian model, which consists of a direct vote via the Internet. Did Elandia succeed with implementation of transformational political change? A number of practical exercises conducted during the training will be carried out under this scenario at different points in the lifecycle of the program: at the beginning, middle and end. 

The training covers the exam syllabus required by the APMG MSP 2011 Foundation. Exam consists of 75 test questions (five questions is trial and they are not rated). The duration of the examination is 60 minutes. To pass you must obtain 35 points or more.
