Abstract:

"One of the greatest challenges an organization faces is to manage the complexity of all the change programmes and projects it has in flight. The need to prioritize investment and focus on those projects that deliver the organization's strategic needs has never been more acute. All sectors face the continuing challenge to deliver more with less. This new guide describes, in the portfolio definition cycle, how to identify the right programmes and projects to deliver and, in the portfolio delivery cycle, how to make sure they continue to meet the organization's strategic needs and provide the benefits they promised. The guide provides valuable insights for managers charged with delivering their organization's change initiatives, as well as practical guidance for those who have the task of day-to-day management of the portfolio of work."--Back cover.
