Before the COVID-19 Pandemic, Portfolio Managers and Executives were likely to spread resources consistently among departments to ensure fairness and minimize conflicts while using different techniques like Balance Scorecard among others.

With the new set of circumstances of today, faced with uncertainty and lack of resources, Portfolio managers and other executives need to restructure their decision-making process on a portfolio level.

Today, Portfolio, Program, Project & PMO Managers have to re-allocate talent & funds across the most valuable initiatives.

Keeping a project or a program which does not add value alive, at the moment, is not acceptable. This is why organizations need to adopt agile portfolio management.

Portfolio Agility, linked with organizational agility can increase and enhance the benefits creation by enhancing the timeline of “cutting cost” and seeing this as an opportunity. It has to be done effectively to enhance the sustainability of organizations.

In this workshop we will teach you how to redesign your portfolio for the new business environment which will allow you to be flexible and increase value, we will teach you how to make decisions in a VUCA environment and how to apply governance to reduce risk while increasing opportunities.
