  • A KPMG study in the UK from 2002 found that among 134 public companies 56% of them had to write off at least one project at an average cost of US$12.5 million. This still didn’t account for Loss of Opportunity cost which likely would have more than doubled that number.
  • Hi my name is Guy Grindborg, a PMP and MoP certified senior consultant/VP with IIL. I have worked in projects, programs and portfolio management over 20+ years in many different industries. I will describe a number of steps that can take your organization to a better use of resources and create better results.
  • Management commitment is a key to success for portfolio management.
  • How do you sell this to your executives?
  • Here we will use a modified cabinet office model to describe portfolio management
  • This is pretty straight off from the cabinet office model and captures the most important first steps.
