Minimizing Hidden Bias in Portfolio Management
Strategic Leadership for Sustained Project and Portfolio Success
It’s a very interesting time for leadership development.
A new study from the prestigious Center for Creative
Leadership (CCL) tells us that because the world is
becoming increasingly more complex, managers can no longer
simply go to their HR managers and ask what courses or
training they should take to move to their next level of
leadership or take leadership courses available in the
market. Rather they will have to make these choices
themselves which begs the obvious question, “How do I know
what I don't know?” Also, PMI is now making Leadership a
core competency for renewing the PMP along with technical
and strategic thinking skills.
This intersection of leader development in general and the above PMP requirement specifically practically screams that the time is right for innovative strategic leadership for sustained project success. “Strategic Leadership” means the ability to reframe problems and opportunities from a range of new, different, and bold perspectives. Leadership research tells us that the strategic skills we have today may not be relevant for the uncertain futures we face tomorrow. It also advises us that skills overused could become weaknesses. With these research findings in mind, it is imperative that project managers change their current mindset to include a newer array of competencies, some of which include:
These are only some of the required characteristics and behaviors needed by project managers to develop Strategic Leadership for sustained Project and Portfolio Success. This presentation will use the above-mentioned points and other practical aspects of strategic leadership that our presenter has come across during his wide experience as a leadership coach. This presentation will raise the consciousness of project managers towards strategic leadership and discuss how to leverage Project Management and Portfolio Management knowledge for the sustained growth of the organization.
Portfolio Management – Linking Strategy with Execution
Studies have shown that organizations fail to realize
their strategy in a majority of cases, with a failure rate
ranging from a low of 50% to a high of 90%. Since this
topic of strategy and its execution are broad and complex,
there are many perspectives and rationales. However, three
of the most commonly mentioned challenges are:
These three questions are core to the emerging discipline of project portfolio management.
This presentation is designed for all business and project executives and to help them develop a more holistic view of the challenges of strategic business execution that links strategy with execution. In addition to providing real life insights, the presenters will also shed light on the direction of the Standard for Portfolio Management in the upcoming fourth edition and conclude the presentation with recommendations for them and their organization.

Strategic Project Portfolio Management Using the Balanced Scorecard
Strategy drives projects – we need to establish portfolio
management processes that are tightly linked to strategic
priorities. It is these techniques that allow
organizations like Google to make project decisions that
seem to defy market sense – until they are executed!
…we need different portfolio management processes to
approve and execute projects like Google’s “Street View”.
