Context:
Assessment 1 discussions are designed to develop your understanding of the concepts of
Project Portfolio Management and the project, program and portfolio management office
(PMO) within the organisation. How an organisation views portfolio management and
operates its PMO will depend on its size and project needs and the perceived impact of the
initiative in terms of strategic organisational value, resource allocation optimisation and
meeting its sustainability goals. Project/Portfolio managers must understand the functions,
roles and responsibilities of the portfolio and PMO needs within their organisation to
successfully design and plan the introduction of portfolio management. This can be achieved
through their knowledge and utilisation of the different ‘best practice’ tools and techniques
for project and program management.

Instructions:
Considering the module reading resources and personal research, the student will post a
main discussion within a timely and relevant manner (staying on the topic), being creative
and bringing critical thinking and a thoughtful approach in the interactions. It is expected
that student contribution to a particular discussion will be made within 3 days of the start of
a new Module. After the main post, the student will contribute a minimum of 2 response
posts to other students in the discussion.
These discussions are to be conducted in a culture of mutual respect towards other students
or participants.
Contemplate the PMI Project, Program and Portfolio Management standards, how these
might integrate and include any academic literature available on Project Portfolio
Management.
