Managing An Effective Project Portfolio (OPM-330)

This workshop is based on the book Effective Portfolio Management Systems (© 2016, CRC Press) and is consistent with the Standard for Portfolio Management (4th Edition, © 2017, Project Management Institute) and the Governance of Portfolios, Programs, and Projects: A Practice Guide (© 2016, Project Management Institute). It describes the appropriate relationship between projects, programs, portfolios, and an organization’s strategic goals, and then focuses on a 4-phased organizational portfolio development lifecycle, from portfolio definition to portfolio implementation and monitoring. Workshop attendees will discuss how organizational strategy does (or does not) guide portfolio management, as well as how to select the “ideal” projects to include in a portfolio – and who should make such selection decisions. Using a Case Study, attendees will also participate in multiple interactive exercises to design a high-level organizational strategy and portfolio blueprint, select portfolio projects, and develop an Organizational Portfolio Management (OPM) Implementation Plan.
