Darya Duma speaks at the PMI Lakeshore Symposium on March 1, 2014 on “Project Governance or is it Governance of Projects?”
Most organizations have strong corporate governance, but often those governance policies and procedures do not apply to projects or at the very least prove to be a poor fit in matrix organizations. Project governance provides the link between the project manager and the executive management of the organization. All the project management processes in the world cannot help if your project does not have the right framework for executive involvement, decision-making and risk management. In this short talk, we will discuss the essential principles of governance for projects, programs and portfolios and how applying those principles can provide a path to project recovery.
As a member of ISO/TC258 on projects, programs and portfolios, Darya has shared thoughts on this topic with some of the leading minds in project management on the international stage. She will discuss the most recent views as proposed in international standards and how those principles translated to application in a recent case study.

After serving several years learning the training business under the Procept banner, instructor Paul Bergman has announced his departure from the organization effective today, November 17, 2008. Bergman worked several years for Procept, helping develop and deliver some beginner-level project management courses for the company. Keith Farndale, president of Procept Associates Ltd. stated that "Procept has always felt free to develop industry-specific, fundamental-level courses" while Bergman prefers generic courses delivered without customization. Farndale also sees the future moving towards more specialized and advanced courses, something Bergman is not inclined to offer. Bergman and Farndale agreed to the split, with Bergman stating that it was "in order to allow each of us to grow strategically."
Bergman leaves on good terms, stating "I will look back on my time with Procept as being very positive, and am grateful for having been able to work with such a high calibre of people all these years. [...] I will also encourage my clients to continue to use Procept". Concerned about the impact on clients, Bergman states "I will do everything I can to help make the transition [...] seem as seamless as possible to our clients."
