One Portfolio or Several?

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Categories Venture: Projects that transform the business Growth: Projects that grow revenue or market share Core: Projects that help run the business

PowerPoint Presentation: 

What are the benefits of Project Portfolio Management?

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Benefits of Project Portfolio Management Builds discipline into project selection process Links project selection to strategic metrics Prioritizes project proposals across a common set of criteria, rather than on politics or emotion Allocates resources to projects that align with strategic direction Balances risk across all projects

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Problems with Project Portfolio Management

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Different views from senior management on what (and how) should be done

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Competition (& effective utilisation) for resources

How to: 

How to Senior Management Input provide guidance in selecting criteria that are aligned with the organization’s goals decide how to balance available resources among current projects The Priority Team Responsibilities publish the priority of every project ensure selection process is transparent re-assess the organization’s goals / priorities evaluate the progress of current projects

Identifying IT Projects

Identifying IT Projects: 

Identifying IT Projects Many organizations follow a planning process for selecting IT projects which is aligned with business strategy Research shows: Supporting business objectives is the number one reason for investing in IT projects Use of IT standards lowers development costs by 41 percent per user (Cosgrove Ware, 2002)

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Project Proposals

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Most business units have a strategic plan

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Which SHOULD align with the organisation’s strategic plan Which SHOULD align with the organisation’s strategic plan

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Solicitation of Project Proposals Within the organization Request for proposal (RFP) from external sources (contractors and vendors)

PowerPoint Presentation: 

When ranking proposals, consider; Discipline Accountability Responsibility Constraints Reduced flexibility Loss of power

Not all project proposals make it to initiation

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Every project idea isn’t progressed. Why?

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Time Money Focus

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Methods for selecting projects include: Focusing on broad organizational needs Categorizing IT projects Financial analysis Using a weighted scoring model balanced scorecard Strategy mapping

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Focusing on Broad Organizational Needs E.g. Non-financial, but important benefits Three important criteria: need for the project funds available for the project will to make the project succeed

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Categorizing IT Projects Does the project provides a response to: a problem an opportunity a directive The time and date of expected completion The overall priority of the project

Financial Analysis: 

Financial Analysis $$$ Net Present Value Payback model Return on Investment (there are more)

Financial Analysis: 

Financial Analysis $$$ Net Present Value Payback model Return on Investment (there are more)

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Net Present Value Net Present Value (NPV) Model Uses management’s minimum desired rate-of-return (discount rate) to compute the present value of all net cash inflows positive NPV: the project meets the minimum desired rate of return and is eligible for further consideration negative NPV: project is rejected Net Present Value (NPV) Model cont’d… NPV Calculations determine estimated costs / benefits for the life of the project and products it produces determine discount rate (ask organization) calculate the NPV some organizations consider the investment year as year 0, others consider it year 1 some organizations enter costs as negative numbers, others do not (ask organization) Example: CP829_Lecture_Week2_NPV.xls Time to Stop and turn to a new presentation pack

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Payback model Figure 4.1 Charting the Payback Period (Schwalbe, 2006, p129) Measures the time it will take to recover the project investment Shorter paybacks are more desirable Payback occurs when cumulative discounted benefits and costs are greater than zero Limitations of payback: ignores the time value of money assumes cash inflows for investment period only does not consider profitability

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Return on Investment Return on Investment (ROI) Calculated by subtracting project costs from the benefits and then dividing by the costs Formula: ROI = (total discounted benefits – total discounted costs) / discounted costs Higher the ROI, the better. Many organizations have a set or minimum rate of return on investment projects Example: CP829_Lecture_Week2_ROI.xls (total discounted benefits – total discounted costs) discounted costs

Non-financial Analysis: 

Non-financial Analysis $$$ Weighted scoring model Balanced Scorecard

PowerPoint Presentation: 

$$$ Weighted scoring model A weighted scoring model is a tool that provides a systematic process for selecting projects based on many criteria Steps in identifying a weighted scoring model: identify criteria for project selection assign weights (%) to criteria add up to (100%) assign scores to each criteria for each project multiply scores by weights to get total scores The higher the weighted score, the better Example: CP829_Lecture_Week2_WeightedScore.xls $$$

PowerPoint Presentation: 

$$$ Balanced Scorecard Balanced Scorecard Robert Kaplan and David Norton developed this approach to help select and manage projects that align with business strategy Methodology that converts an organization’s value drivers, such as customer service, innovation, efficiency, and financial performance, to a series of defined metrics See http://www.balancedscorecard.org for more information $$$

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Applying a selection model

Applying a Selection Model: 

Applying a Selection Model Project Classification Deciding how well a strategic or operations project fits the organization’s strategy Selecting a Model Focus on competitive strategy and broad organizational needs Perform net present value analysis or other financial projections Use a weighted scoring model Implement a balanced scorecard Address problems, opportunities, and directives Consider project time frame Consider project priority

What happened?

PowerPoint Presentation: 

“The reasons for the increase in successful projects vary. First, the average cost of a project has been more than cut in half. Better tools have been created to monitor and control progress and better skilled project managers with better management processes are being used. The fact that there are processes is significant in itself.” (Standish Group cited in Schwalbe, 2004, p13)
