Portfolio Selection and Optimization

Learn how to choose and align projects based on the strategic and financial criteria, ensuring the correct investments allocation.

The task of selecting the projects that the organization will carry out and invest in is directly linked to the company's strategy. The selection criteria defined in the strategy must have the approval of the main leaders and be objective. It is useless to invest in projects that will not be aligned with the strategy, not bringing positive results for the organization.

In this course, the students will be qualified in portfolio management, one of the main strategic alignment tools between project management and organizational strategy.
