Description

Details

All of your projects and programs make up your portfolio. But how much time you actually spend on your projects, and how much time do you spend responding to emergencies?

Once you learn to manage your portfolio better, you'll avoid emergency fire drills. One of the tricks Manage Your Project Portfolio teaches is adopting lean and agile approaches to projects—no matter the project type.

Manage Your Project Portfolio will help you collect all your work, decide which projects you should do first, second—and never. You’ll see how to tie your work to your organization’s mission and show your board, your managers, and your staff what you can accomplish and when. You’ll get a better view of the work you have, and learn how to make those difficult decisions, ensuring that all your strength is focused where it needs to be.

If you and your team experience any of these problems, you need this book:

  • You or your staff are having trouble successfully multitasking
  • You have many emergency projects or emergencies arise on your projects
  • It's difficult for people to agree on goals, priorities, or make strategic decisions
  • You and your team cannot make decisions as a functional group

You may be accustomed to spending time in team meetings but walk away without the data you need to evaluate your projects. With this book and a few simple steps, you'll be able to quickly evaluate each project and which will simplify the group decision making process. You'll learn how to define your team's, group's, or department's mission with none of the buzzwords that normally accompany a mission statement. Armed with the work and the mission, you and your team can make decisions that define the true leaders in the organization.
