Connecting the Dots: Aligning Projects with Objectives in Unpredictable Times

Buy

Are you ever going to see the value promised from your company’s project portfolio?

The question is all too familiar. The concern is real and legitimate. Technology and other project initiatives have grown faster than the ability of most companies to manage them—affecting the return on the investment of trillions of dollars while ill preparing companies for today’s unpredictable environment.

Indeed, in Connecting the Dots, Cathleen Benko and F. Warren McFarlan argue that the portfolio is your organization’s future currency—the single most important asset for delivering on strategic and operational objectives. And the best way to leverage this currency is through greater alignment.

Connecting the Dots employs a practical “play the hand you are holding” approach, providing a balance of concepts and roll-up-your-sleeves guidance on how to:

  • Determine how well-aligned—or misaligned—your organization is today
  • Reveal opportunities for increasing portfolio economics
  • Apply tools to reduce portfolio risk while improving its efficiency, flexibility, and direction
  • Instill new mind-sets to better respond to whatever future presents itself
