Friends of Odysseus

The Friends of Odysseus is an initiative inspired by our customers. It is a program that has been launched with the purpose of setting up a community of people who are involved in- or are responsible for Project & Portfolio Management (PPM) within their organizations. Odysseus wants to be an industry leader but can only do so through active participation by people who want to share knowledge within a network, with the further possibility of collaboration and innovation.

PPM is still a young field and is often positioned highly on the ambition list of many companies. Representatives of these companies can become a part of the Friends of Odysseus network. Odysseus facilitates this community for its customers and relations so that they have the opportunity to share best practices and to meet other PPM peers and professionals that all have one common goal: to give more direction to Project & Portfolio Management and to focus on what matters!

Participants in this community form a network and adhere to the following basic principles of the Friends of Odysseus program. Members are end-representatives of a customer who are:
•Active in any of the PPM functions of their organization;
•Willing to share own know-how and best practices;
•Interested in learning from other members;
•Keen on participating in discussions on key PPM challenges and opportunities;
•Eager to integrate internal and external expertise to develop ideas;
•Open for calls and/or visits by other members;
•Enthusiastic about the 'inside out' principle of sharing knowledge and experience;
•Into 'open innovation' philosophy.

The network will be supported by the Odysseus website and by a group on LinkedIn, as well as through periodic PPM e-mails sent by Odysseus. Initially, discussions can be initiated between members via the above forums. Eventually the program will host small events such as round tables, information gatherings or 'meet and greet' sessions; these may be coordinated by Odysseus but the aspiration is that members will become motivated enough to organize similar events for the Friends of Odysseus community.

The Friends of Odysseus program is free to members wanting to take part and contribute to this knowledge-sharing community in a positive manner. Members should have no commercial intention for indirect or direct selling propositions. Furthermore, service providers are not permitted to become members. Odysseus reserves the right to decline or terminate membership at any time.
