- Launchtown is complete and has been running in place for 2+ months. It’s imperative that we have a full portfolio of work, demand and projects prior to attempting portfolio selections.
- All Group/Department or Line of Business Resource Manager(s) and their Team members
- All project managers/schedulers
- PMO/EPMO Leadership
- Chosen Application Admin(s)
- Chosen Reporting Developer(s)
After you have a complete portfolio running for a few months, we can begin to create portfolios and rank and review them for selections. You can gauge this if you have a complete portfolio or at least a complete portfolio for a specific subset of your organization i.e. Information Technology.
Portfolio Management and selection is as much an artform as it is a technical endeavor. It is best done behind the scenes within the PMO or EPMO initially to ensure we have good information and it aligns with the companies goals and values. As much effort it took for the Project managers to learn and adapt to dynamic scheduling; it will take the portfolio managers to understand, scoring, ranking, drivers and portfolio management. Take your time and practice often prior to facilitating your first Portfolio Selection.
