Here's How A Project Management Office Can Minimize Stakeholder Backlash When Projects Are Killed
Sometimes there's no way around it: The executive project management office (EPMO) has to recommend to the C-suite a certain number of projects to kill. These recommendations might be based on factors such as poor strategic alignment, huge delays in project completion, changes in the business plan, unexpected market trends, regulatory edicts and the launch of new projects. Whatever the reason, it is of paramount importance for the EPMO to establish a well-crafted project portfolio management process to support any cull.
