Aligning Your Project Portfolio to Goals
You wouldn’t want to work on a project that didn’t help you achieve a corporate goal. The time and resources involved could be much better spent elsewhere. And yet, this happens frequently for many companies because ensuring projects are aligned to goals is actually a pretty difficult task. When you have dozens or hundreds of projects, it’s easy to get buried under budgets, milestones, dependencies and other project details and lose sight of the most important aspect of a project: how it contributes to your goals.
To cut through the project noise, you need a high-level view of your projects. You need a roadmap. With a roadmap, you can visually determine which projects contribute to which goals. You can quickly see if your project portfolio favors certain goals over others or if projects are completely misaligned. Not only does Meisterplan’s Roadmap help you understand how your projects contribute to goals by grouping projects based on the goals they are helping to achieve, but you can also gain valuable insights by grouping projects by other relevant criteria such as Strategy Fit, Payback Period and Stage Gate.
