At France Telecom/Orange, Six Sigma and Lean project portfolios are managed side by side with New Product Development, IT Project Portfolio Management, CapEx and other strategic initiatives and project portfolios. All project portfolios are driven by a single corporate-level strategy called NExT (a New Experience in Telecom Services). Mr. Dunoyer de Segonzac will describe the France Telecom top-down model of multi-initiative project portfolio management and governance. Attendees will have the opportunity to glean insights into the role of Six Sigma project portfolios in a world driven by a corporate-level Project Management Office (PMO). In addition, lessons learned and best practices will be shared on how to:

  • Prioritize operational excellence projects in a multi-initiative context
  • Use strategy alignment to drive project selection and to share and drive a common vision
