Anders Høeg Brask from Nationalbanken will start the evening with a talk about how to distinguish between doing the right projects instead of the wrong ones?
We will meet after the presentation for a Christmas drink & snack and focus on socializing and networking.
How do distinguish between doing the right projects instead of the wrong ones?
The demand for new IT always exceeds the supply of resources available to do the projects. So how do you make sure that you only do the right projects for your company? How do you choose between the projects who fits your strategic goals, the ones who secure the most compliance, the ones who mitigate most risks or the ones with the best return of investment?
For the past five years, we have worked rigorously with developing our Project Portfolio Management governance in Danmarks Nationalbank. Among the things that we have done is the developing of a screening motor, which helps us asses new project ideas, and especially how it fits our business and IT-strategy. We have at the same time implemented big changes to the project governance setup and the stage-gate model. We did all this whilst we were in the middle of outsourcing our IT development and IT operations to an external vendor. Get an insight into what we have done - which tools we have invented, and what we have learned in the process.
