Organisational Issues Involved in Project Portfolio Management in Terms of Organisational State-Transition Approach

    Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookConference contribution

    Abstract

    Managing project portfolios has become significantly important for organisations. In addition, interest in project portfolio management (PPM) has increased amongst both academics and practitioners. Project portfolio management is defined as a decision-making process that projects and/or programs are evaluated, selected and prioritised, and resources are allocated to achieve strategic goals. This research aims to understand the issues involved in PPM in terms of Organisational State-Transition Approach (OSTA). OSTA has been defined as a well tried and reliable method to understand PPM’s complexity. This paper discusses the findings from part of a PhD study which has used OSTA in PPM. However, the finding presented in this paper focuses on organisational issues that are explored through case study research from seven Australian cases which were reviewed.
