Welcome to the Elite Project & Programme Management Community. Working in partnership with the Scottish Government, our Community is a free resource committed to driving innovation and improvement in Project & Programme Management through knowledge sharing and professional networking.
Knowledge sharing is an essential ingredient to achieving success. It can improve decision-making capabilities, identify skills gaps, help to build learning organisations and stimulate innovation and positive change.
Peer to peer knowledge sharing is especially impactful when expertise is scarce. Knowledge and skills that are passed between colleagues, learners or co-workers are especially effective due to their extreme relevancy and timeliness.
Our Community network nurtures innovation and positive change through networking events, guest speakers, ask the expert initiatives and our community newsletter.
If you’d like to find out more please register your interest.
Our networking events are an excellent way to gain new perspectives from like minded individuals who face similar pain points in their daily work lives. Exchanging observations about goals, challenges and learned experiences is an invaluable asset that our members can bring to their next set of projects.
Build relationships with like-minded people and make connections with other organisations. Explore partnership working and resource sharing opportunities with business peers within our community network.
Our events allow community members to exchange best practice knowledge, master new business techniques from guest speakers and keep up to date with the latest industry developments.
The Praxis Framework was launched in 2014 to integrate knowledge, method, competence and maturity for projects, programmes and portfolios linking national and international PM guidance. It provides a single set of processes and delivery resources using a standard glossary of terms.
This seminar will introduce the Praxis Framework and explore how it can help individuals, project teams, and organisations deliver beneficial business change.
Many organisations come to risk management from the perspective of dealing with the adverse effects of uncertain events. This is reasonable given a desire to avoid personal, financial, or reputational damage resulting from (say) Health and Safety events, to name one of many areas of the business concern.
This seminar will explore how positive “opportunity” risks should be handled and explore how participants should respond to several positive risk events.
Good governance requires appropriate delegation within agreed control limits but needs to be backed up by focused assurance. Assurance reviews take time and effort to conduct and also impact the project(s) being audited.
We’ll be discussing how to target the right areas to get the best value for money from our assurance activities.

Founded in 2006 with headquarters in Glasgow, Elite Training offers a comprehensive range of IT, Professional Best Practice and Business Skills training across the UK.
At Elite Training, we understand that every client is different and as such customise training solutions to suit your individual requirements. We are interested in building strong, long lasting business relationships based on high quality training and customer care. We pride ourselves on responding quickly to queries and providing advice on all your training requirements.
We’ve spent the last 13 years building a diverse client base with an almost equal split between public and private sector contracts. We’ve worked extensively across all branches of Scottish Government, local government and the NHS. We’re also proud to have met the training needs of private sector organisations such as TSB, Telegraph Media Group and BNP Paribas.
Our main business is conducted with mid-to-large companies and organisations, which are more inclined to invest in training and tend to have cohesive learning development plans.
We believe in improving organisational productivity through the reduction of skills gaps and tackling workforce skill shortages. Our role in helping clients address these issues has led to tangible productivity and skills improvements across the whole of our client portfolio.
