Project Portfolio Management Works for More Than Just IT

When people hear the term project portfolio management (PPM), many think that it is a process to manage IT projects and investments. This is not surprising considering Richard Nolan first applied the portfolio concept in relation to IT back in 1973 in an article in the Harvard Business Review. Reducing the number of “bad” projects that are approved, and knowing when to cancel “bad” projects that are already in process. Once that is done, you can start the Lean PPM process.

Misunderstanding Making Decisions in the Presence of Uncertainty

This quote demonstrates a lack of understanding of making decisions in the presence of uncertainty and the processes and events that create uncertainty. There is naturally occurring variability from uncontrolled processes. Aleatory uncertainty is expressed as a process variability.

What Project Management 2.0 IS and what it IS NOT (Part 1)
