About the Presentation
In today’s world, most technology projects need to handle increased complexity and large uncertainty along with fast-paced changes on the technological landscape. These projects are both difficult and challenging even for the most seasoned project managers and require novel approaches in order to enable successful outcomes. Creating a portfolio of these technology projects requires a versatile skill set, the ability to manage the unforeseen, and a strategic vision. In this presentation best practices for technology portfolio management will be discussed. This presentation will examine the challenges technology projects encounter; how to translate strategic goals into a portfolio of projects; how to select technology projects; assembling a portfolio that will have the highest return on investment for an organization; and developing a performance monitoring system to manage a project portfolio.
