  1. Some nuggets i picked up from Mr Ward : having different processes for the portfolio of products vs portfolio related to how you operate, choosing the leadership of the portfolio is crucial, getting executives to talk about the portfolio is okay as a selection process, people make decisions, not models, getting the PMO to support the portfolio process but not necessarily be a voting member and finally, discipline (following what was agreed upon) is KEY. Thanks for the podcast!

  2. Enjoyed the podcast. Agree these are the top 6 questions to ask when establishing and maintaining effective strategic portfolio management. Will takeaway the tip on discipline – establishing rules is one thing … abiding by them is another.
