Am I Project or Portfolio Manager?
Every day you have so many tasks, so many initiatives. Are you managing project or, in fact, the whole portfolio of projects? How to handle this new situation? Most importantly, how to report everything to your higher management?
Make Your First Portfolio Report is a complete step-by-step course that enables examining your situation, setting priorities by asking right questions and making fully operating report that can give you and your higher management better understanding about what’s going on in a company. Make correct decisions based on facts not on wishes.
This course consists knowledge gathered during working with most demanding industries: aviation, space, robotics etc. Industries with high pace, little margin for mistakes and need for data and facts not wishful thinking. Therefore, this course is unique. It provides valuable insight into procedures and approach used in cooperating with big entities like EC, ESA and small ones like start-ups.
This is real portfolio making not theoretical daydreaming
Each section of the course ends with two practical exercises with one goal: progress your Portfolio Report. In the first part of those exercise, the examplary company that we have created for this course purposes will be used and you will get all required data from us. And in the second part, your individual situation will be considered. For the first part you’ve got also solution sheet (or partially filled Report) to compare with your answers. Preparing answers for the second part is basically making step by step Portfolio Report for your company.
I’ll be your teacher
Over years I’ve worked in projects strictly scientific, r&d and fully industrial in areas like: space and aircraft systems, automation and robotization of production, AI technologies, dedicated software engineering. That gives me unique knowledge and understanding how to manage projects in different environments. That is crucial for this course because often you can find tutorials and courses targeted for very precise audience. For many people that course trouble: how to adapt this knowledge for my situation.
I have Ph.D. in Mechanics (Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering). I cooperate with the European Commission as an independent expert/evaluator and reviewer of projects submitted under the Horizon 2020 Programme and other EC Programmes. On daily bases I’m Portfolio Project Manager and R&D Director managing projects among others: European Space Agency, European Commission, The National Centre for Research and Development.
