Multiple-Project Management

  • Alberto De MarcoEmail author


This chapter summarizes objectives, methods and tools to manage the multiple-project environment of a construction company. First, it discusses the process of aligning the portfolio of projects to the corporate strategic objectives. Then, it presents methods and practices for planning and managing programs of coordinated projects. In particular, a sound multiple-scoring technique is introduced for the purpose of selecting the appropriate projects in a program, as well as other cost-benefit and cost effectiveness analyses.
