"There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all."
Peter Drucker

While we focus on efficiency of our teams we often forget a more important part: what work gets done. Once we look at project or product portfolios we quickly realize how incredibly bloated they tend to be. It means that making decisions on new endeavors is difficult and an organization delivers little value. It also means that any team level improvements are insignificant because of inefficiencies incurred by management approach on a higher level.

Let's see what is typically happening with our portfolios. We will run a simulation where everyone will be put in charge of building bright future of an organization deciding on all the projects it runs.

We will experience how estimated cost and expected profit drive wrong behaviors in portfolio management. We will discuss value, risks, Real Options, Cost of Delay, multitasking and utilization as factors we should be considering instead when deciding on new projects or products. Finally, we will learn how Portfolio Kanban drives the change toward optimizing delivered value.
