In this audio session Eugene Kania describes how to create a Lean Project Portfolio – one that is high-value, achievable and executable. Kania demonstrates methods for mapping the risks and rewards associated with projects, for prioritizing elements in a portfolio and for understanding the tradeoffs involved. Kania describes a simple tool for resource planning which helps to diminish the work-in-process in the portfolio. He also describes how to use critical chain and buffers to help execute the projects within the portfolio. Kania and his colleagues have moved beyond theory, testing these methods with a number of companies, which have enjoyed greatly increased throughput, with a decrease in cycle time; these portfolio methods also resulted in greater productivity and an improvement in job satisfaction.
