Project Portfolio Management at SCA , Tissue AFH - Process and Tools
Paper i proceeding, 2005
This case study analyses how different tools need to be adapted and applied to the project portfolio management work in order to fulfil the goals and expectations of different organisational units. The project portfolio management tools, as well as goals and expectations, are often dealt with too comprehensively in earlier literature, without an explicit understanding of how the tools should be adapted and applied in order to fulfil the set of goals and expectations in a specific situation.
The study shows that a combination of different portfolio management tools is needed in order to fulfil the different goals and expectations on project portfolio management work. Further, the study shows not only that while different tools are used to support the managers in their decisions on the project portfolio, but also that it is important to adapt and apply the different tools to an appropriate decision process.
