All too often the portfolio of projects and programs looks more like a random heap than a strategically organized and balanced collection of investments that will drive the business forward. This blueprint will help you achieve an organized portfolio by following our three-phase methodology:
- Assess the current state of the portfolio and PPM processes.
- Enhance portfolio organization through improved PPM criteria and processes.
- Implement improved portfolio management practices.
Maintaining an organized portfolio will allow you to ensure that the organization only takes on projects that are aligned with its goals and that it can actually do with the resources provided. It also helps portfolio organizers show the organization how the work being done fits the larger plan and helps set realistic expectations about what can be done to drive the business forward.
