TECHNICAL SESSION 4

Benchmarking your Project Portfolio Execution against Top PMO Practices.

A recent survey at the MINEX Russian Mining Club revealed that less than 30% of projects are completed on time and on budget and only 16% exceed expectations.

While operating costs have surged and volatility continues, mining companies are embarking on numerous initiatives to tackle resources in tougher regions. How many of those will be completed on time, on budget and produce the expected results?

A strong PMO Practice helps managing stakeholders' expectations, account for unforeseen events, prioritize your portfolio, and increase the robustness of project execution.

The presentation will explore the PMO practices used in top mining companies and will give you the opportunity to benchmark yourself against those practices that include tools, methodologies, KPIs, planning, execution, and control. Case studies will be used to illustrate key practices.
