All projects are investments, yet most project portfolios aren’t managed with the same ROI focus and financial-management discipline that we’ve come to expect from the typical investment portfolio. Ask any PM what their primary job is, and they’ll likely say a lot about delivering projects within plan, but very little about maximizing ROI—or in public-sector terms, maximizing mission impact. As a result, a lot of potential “bang-for-the-buck” is left unexplored and, therefore, unexploited. This PM Tools session will provide an introduction to three techniques that, taken together, have the power to boost ROI by 10X or higher.
