You do not want to overuse resources, take on too many projects at one time, or lose sight of the big picture, as it relates to your organisation’s project portfolio. You need an enterprise view of your entire project portfolio; otherwise you may lose sight into the high-priority goals and objectives you are trying to achieve.
ESI’s Project Portfolio Management Using Agile teaches learners to apply Agile, Lean and Kanban to project portfolio planning and management. It provides new methods for planning, prioritising, sizing and managing projects and programmes of any size within the portfolio.
