Learn about project management at the Gates Foundation
An event organized by PMI Switzerland.
Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives. In developing countries, it focuses on improving people’s health and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty. The EPMO is responsible for project and portfolio management at the Gates Foundation.
This presentation will provide an opportunity to learn about project management at the Gates Foundation – the value of an Enterprise Project Management Office, true enterprise-wide Portfolio Management, and the best practices associated with an EPMO.
The Gates Foundation also helps fund the World Health Organization (WHO) and they have loaned Mr. Kingsberry to the WHO to establish an organization-wide Project Management Centre of Excellence (PMCOE). The PMCOE is a strategic investment for WHO, enabling the Organization to manage consistently and align projects with long-term global health goals, as well as to support in delivering emergency responses.
