Bring your team together to learn how you can create the highest value from your company’s investments in new products, innovation and R&D—in the convenience of your own office. Advanced technology will bring you together with industry experts and your peers via highly participative case studies and exercises that draw on the best practices of leading companies.  


During this month long course, you and your colleagues have the opportunity to create a draft of your organization’s revitalized portfolio. Through a series of online workshops, interactive simulations, teleconferenced coaching sessions and networking opportunities, you and your team will have the opportunity to learn and apply principles of good portfolio management to your own portfolio process. You will learn what it takes to deal with key difficulties in evaluation, fully understand how to reach prioritization and portfolio strategy decisions by trying out the principles of good portfolio management.


By actively participating in this program, you will learn how to:


  • Identify and focus scarce resources on high value projects
  • Weed out the losers early in your process
  • Retain value if you have to cut resources
  • Make uncertainty work for you
  • Develop defensible forecast of economic value
  • Make faster, better decisions with limited information
  • Achieve high margins with limited resources
