In any organization, projects are done for a reason. It might be a sound, well thought out justification or a project could even be undertaken on a mere whim, but there are always perceived benefits behind every one. However, only some projects realize these benefits while other fail miserably, but how will you know? How do you determine that your project achieved the expected benefits?

What are the steps the portfolio can take to ensure projects have the required supports, that expectations are being managed and that governance and oversight is being applied? Join us for this month's Portfolio HEADWAY webinar when we examine portfolio governance and oversight.
