Leeds, England – 11th October 2001 – PMG, The Program Management Group, is promoting two seminars aimed at project and programme managers. The free events, in Wetherby and Brussels, will explore the challenges of managing multiple projects and explain programme management techniques.

“Managing Vital Programmes” at Chateau de Ruisbroeck, Brussels on October 24th is jointly organised by Belgian project management specialist, Davoise & Associates s.a. in association with PMG. This half-day seminar includes a keynote speech from Jean-Pierre Cardinael, managing director at Fortis Bank, which has recently used programme management techniques and the Hydra software tool to successfully manage a 2200-person project to merge two businesses.

“Making the Difference with Programme Management” at PMG’s UK HQ in Wetherby, West Yorkshire on November 13th will highlight the failings of traditional project management techniques and explain programme management and its multi-project capabilities for collaborative working. The half-day event promises to demonstrate methods to re-energise organisations and increase staff productivity by up to 20 per cent.

Further free seminars are planned for 2002.

Managers interested in either event can register by visiting or calling 44 1937 547166.
