Portfolio management is everywhere, whether we recognize it or not! My previous post summarized the APMG guidance on portfolio management, titled Management of Portfolios or MoP®.* While organizations rush to adopt portfolio management as a means to making more effective project investment decisions, many people struggle in the early stages with the explanation of what portfolio management is and the value it will add to the organization.
Effective portfolio management in any organization allows you to see your current initiatives along with their costs and benefits. This view enables effective decision-making across the business and provides senior management with a way to successfully gain measurable benefits from business change. If you are curious about portfolio management or want to get more familiar with the how portfolio management is done, you may want to consider tuning in to an APMG-sponsored webinar next week to learn more.
The webinar, titled “What in the World is Portfolio Management?” is scheduled for 25 June 2103 at 1100 Eastern time. It should last anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes and will be presented in English. Craig Kilford, author of portfolio management guidance, will provide an overview of portfolio management in the context of the international standard Management of Portfolios and spotlight some of the key messages and proven techniques that help engage and energize senior leadership and portfolio delivery teams.
