    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.
