The Birth of a Project: Portfolio Management

  • Alan Cline


Business executives and developers look at projects differently. This chapter focuses on what the business executives need to authorize a project, and how to separate one project from another in terms of selecting the “best” project for the organization at the time. It explains what information is needed to get a project started, and how its scope is refined to prepare it for the development team. The project manager and business analyst must understand both the business management and development team perspectives to maintain the goals of both groups.
