Chapter Meeting & Presentation "Portfolio Management in Modern Times"
Portfolio Management in Modern Times
With the introduction of Agile principles, process and techniques into our Project Management profession, we are constantly being asked to do something new…or quite often more. With our new way of working in which many of our teams are now fully remote, we find ourselves spending every day attending one online meeting after another. With these two factors alone, it is safe to say that our Project Management world is quite different….in turn our Portfolio Management approach should be different than it was just a few years ago.
This will be a very interactive presentation as we review the definition of Portfolio Management, outline the benefits, align that definition to a few of the "12 Project Management Principles" defined by PMI (PMBOK 7th Edition), and explore suggested improvements to Portfolio Management.
