    Roland has a strong belief and affinity for lean methods and believes that with willing and open-minded management and team members, we can always discover better ways to deliver. 

    Topic Description: 

    Project Portfolio Management and Its Impact on Project Delivery

    Many organizations struggle with how to improve project performance and significant effort is placed on project management efforts. However, many of the issues that we see in project delivery have their origin upstream at the portfolio level. Challenges with schedule, scope, quality, and alignment are often natural outcomes of inadequate portfolio management. In this session, we will discuss portfolio management and its direct impact upon cost, quality, and schedule. We will then demonstrate methods for using agile ideas such as visualization, WIP limits, timeboxing, and other tools for dramatically improving project portfolio management and resulting project delivery.

    This Session Qualifies for:

    Professional Development Units (PDU) for PMI certified professionals:

    The introduction of the updated CCR system, has resulted in a much simpler procedure for claiming PDUs. As before, there are no specific PDU codes for events that award up to 2 PDUs. Each PMI Houston meeting with a 1-hour presentation, on a PM Talent Triangle topic, equals 1 PDU. (The category for each presentation will be indicated on the web-site)  This includes dinner meetings, pre-dinner meetings and meetings at any of PMI Houston's satellite venues.  If you attended both pre-dinner and dinner presentations, please submit 2 PDU claims following the process below for each presentation event.
