Managing multiple projects is essentially managing resources, time, costs, quality, scope and risk in a continually changing environment. Each individual project will face similar challenges at different stages of the project life cycle. The process can be easy to manage in a single project environment but as businesses react to changes in the market the number of projects that team member, stakeholders and project managers can be assigned to work on in any given time period. The work expands to include the management of multiple scope statements, multiple budgets, multiple schedules, multiple risks, multiple issues, multiple functional members and multiple stakeholders. You learn the skills required to develop a structure for integrating individual projects into a single project portfolio.
