Portfolio Management Methodology
Our approach to selecting the right portfolio of projects involves engaging key decision stakeholders to evaluate and score proposed (or ongoing) projects based on value, risk, effort, cost and strategic alignment. The output of project portfolio optimization includes a bubble diagram that identifies projects which can be immediately approved for funding or be deferred, revised or rejected. We also help project teams optimize resource investments based on objective “what-if” trade off analysis, financial modeling and Monte Carlo simulations. Below is an overview of Darby's portfolio optimization process backed by a comprehensive set of templates, assessment tools and technology.
