About This Course
With so many project proposals to choose from to charter as programs and projects and include in the portfolio, why are some chosen and others abandoned? In this course, led by Velociteach’s Louis Alderman, PMP, PMI-ACP, learn why projects are investments, where they fit in the “big picture,” and how they are vetted against each other based on beneficial contributions and the cost of the investment. Factors such as project triggers, compliance factors, the gap from today to tomorrow, and financial benefit measurement methods are reviewed and explained. These strategies and concepts apply to project and program investments – whether traditional or agile!
