Planning the Portfolio: Characteristics of Successful Portfolio (Part 1)

In part one of this three part series, Alan Shefveland investigates and discusses what makes portfolio planning useful and successful. Shefveland makes sure to explain just why portfolio planning makes sense: business alignment, high value project are completed first, reduced gridlock, and spending reflects business strategy. While all of those benefits are worthwhile, organizations encounter cost and resource constraints for a full review of how portfolios are planned and executed. As the series moves forward, Shefveland expects to cover exactly why and how portfolio planning is worth the effort.
