PM Insight Sunnyvale Virtual Meeting - Avoiding "Too Many Projects" Using Portfolio Analysis


PM Insight-Sunnyvale Virtual Meeting:

Avoiding "Too Many Projects" Using Portfolio Analysis

When:   Wed Jun 9, 2021 6:00pm-8:00pm
Where:  Virtual Meeting 
Last Date for On-line Registration is 6/8 at 10PM
Registrants will receive meeting joining details from Meeting Leader by afternoon on the event day.

Avoiding the “too many projects” problem depends on a coherent portfolio management process for selecting and staffing projects. Whenever an organization initiates work requiring more money, staff, or other resources than are available, projects are a challenge to control and many inevitably fail. 

An effective process for managing project portfolios at the organization level helps to ensure that the mix of current projects remains within its realistic resource limits. 



  • This presentation will focus on:

    • Selecting the best project possibilities from a substantial list
    • Adequately staffing fewer, better projects
    • Better aligning projects to business strategies
    • Ensuring an appropriate mix of project risks
