Nowadays, companies are looking for projects that are right for their business.
Portfolio Managers usually focus on schedule, costs, resource utilization and scope changes.
Even if these are important aspects of a project, they don’t always reflect the projects through impact on the business.
When Portfolio Managers talk with executives should focus more on benefits revenue and return on investment then on costs.
Keep in mind: For each person with whom you, as Portfolio Manager, communicate think about how that person gets measured and views success.
