Every organization has too many projects clamoring for insufficient resources. Often leaders respond by trying to do too much with too little. This starves the most important projects, wastes resources on the wrong work, and causes unbalanced risks and myopic horizons. Portfolio management is a proven antidote to this. It helps leaders look broadly across their organization to invest in the right projects and coordinate their execution. This advanced course looks at current techniques and best practices for managing project portfolios, aligning them with strategic direction and making the best use of limited resources.
