Imagine my surprise when I saw a LinkedIn article featuring my good friend Brian Grafsgaard. The article
was an interview conducted by Dr. Rahim. Brian Grafsgaard was providing a good synopsis of how the project management profession has matured and why organizations are adopting the spectrum of the project management discipline. Brian aptly points out that project management provides a structured approach for implementing strategy through portfolio management while correctly selecting the correct projects to increase the value of the portfolio.
I one time heard Brian state that no corporation has a blank checkbook and that is why project portfolio can help companies. Brian continues this mantra but takes it a step farther to show how project, program, and portfolio should fit together seamlessly to create a culture that is consistently questioning and driving to constantly do the right projects and programs to delight customers and enhance the company's bottom line.
