Starting with strategy and ideation through to implementation and ending with benefits. What part does the PMO play in creating the environment for and managing that process? Built on Office 365, edison365 combines an intuitive ideation platform and a leading Project Portfolio Management tool, to deliver end to end innovation.

This presentation will describe a methodology to de-risk programmes and also explore a theoretical case study exploring the mechanisms to de-risk programmes in banks.
