Board level governance of the project portfolio reduces problem projects by 27%

July 7, 2013

I came across this paper by Prof. de Reyck of UCL which I thought I found interesting.

A survey of 34 organisations found that adoption of project portfolio management and the setting up of a projects sub-committee of the main board had a statistically significant impact on the attainment of organisational objectives (up from only 10% satisfaction to 60% satisfaction with PPM) and reduction of widespread project problems (down from 80% to 53% with mature PPM adoption).
