Com, for allowing me to use his great comics. I want to thank my students and colleagues at Augsburg College, the University of Minnesota, and corporate classes for providing input. I received many valuable comments from them on ways to improve my materials and courses. I am also grateful for the examples students and instructors around the world provide and the questions they ask in classes or via email. I learn new aspects of project management and teaching by interacting with students, faculty, and staff.
Just like a personal financial portfolio, a business’s portfolio should be diversified to account for risk. By grouping projects into portfolios, organizations can better tie their projects to meeting strategic goals. Portfolio management can also help organizations do a better job of managing its human resources by hiring, training, and retaining workers to support the projects in the organization’s portfolio. For example, if the construction firm needs more people with experience in building apartment buildings, they can make necessary adjustments by hiring or training current workers in the necessary skills.
Good project managers do not assume that their definition of success is the same as the sponsors’ definition. They take the time to understand their sponsors’ expectations. For example, if you are building a home for someone, find out what is most important: meeting scope, time, and cost goals of the project to build the home satisfying other needs, such as communicating in a certain way being sure the project delivers a certain result, such as providing the home of the owners’ dreams or a good return on investment.
