Project portfolio management (PPM), when tailored to context, improves the effectiveness of senior management decision making on selecting, prioritizing, funding, monitoring, and adjusting projects. Such portfolio-level approaches can improve alignment with an organization’s strategy and enhance return-on-investment (ROI). Although the construction sector is strongly project-based and represents a major segment of the global economy (13% of GDP $ 10 trillion in 2018 projected to $14 Trillion by 2025), little is known about whether and how Project Portfolio Management (PPM) can provide benefits in this important sector. The research team from Australia and the United Kingdom investigated approaches to strategic alignment and PPM through inquiring into project-based practices of organizations in the construction sector. We found that PPM approaches are used in the case firms investigated, despite the fact that the terms ‘portfolio’ and ‘portfolio management’ were not always used. Our findings also show PPM approaches being tailored to suit the construction context.
In this installment of the Discover PMI – Ask Us Anything Series, we aim to put youth on the path to success by incorporating project management skills into their daily lives. In 2019 the PMIEF Board of Directors approved a strategic plan which runs through 2027 which narrowed the scope of the PMIEF to enable youth through partnerships with Youth-Serving Nonprofits (YSNPs). As we enter the second phase of this plan, we would like to take the opportunity to present to the PMI community how we're doing on our mission and provide insight on legacy PMIEF programs.
Leadership in projects is dynamic and alternates between actors. This presentation on the award-winning study of leadership reality in projects and its resulting theory of balanced and horizontal leadership outlines project-specific approaches to leadership. These include temporary appointments of horizontal leaders, as well as the dynamic assignment (i.e., the balancing) of leadership authority to the best possible leader in different situations. To that end, it outlines a framework including recently identified types of leadership and their situational contingencies. This includes the five events that make up horizontal leadership in projects. These are nomination of team members, identification of potential leaders, selection and empowerment of leaders, empowered leadership and its governance, as well as leadership transition. Moreover, the presentation addresses the coordination of these events through the socio-cognitive space, and the dynamic assignment of leadership authority to the best possible leader at a time, which is known as balanced leadership.

In this installment of the Discover PMI – Ask Us Anything Series, we aim to put diversity, equity, and inclusion in the center of what we do. Because we are a global community, by nature, PMI, is diverse. Our community is made up of individuals from all walks of life, and varying industries, backgrounds, and regional locations. Something we don’t take for granted. While we have for a long time honored our diverse community, PMI’s intentional work in this space started with discussions by the board at the end of 2019 asking what more can we do to honor our community? In 2020 we formally gathered an internal Core Team that laid the foundation for this program. Throughout the course of the last two years we have set a strong foundation for PMI’s presence and journey in this space. That foundation is solid and we are moving to integrate this work into all parts of the organization. Learn more about DE&I at PMI and how you can make an impact as we work towards an equitable future.

This talk will start with a discussion of the two most popular frameworks in Agile today – Scrum and SAFe. These are focused on teams and entire organizations, respectively. However, each misses something very important. After seeing the good Scrum and SAFe provide and summarizing what’s missing, the talk will discuss what Disciplined Agile can offer in general—and what the DA Sr Scrum Master and Value Stream Consultant certifications offer in particular.
