The economy is forcing companies to maximize their resources and increase profitability. As a result, executive teams are evaluating approaches to ensure they are focused on the right projects, as well as tools enabling them to successfully manage their entire portfolio of projects.

This report provides guidance to help companies use project portfolio management to balance risk while focusing resources on the right projects to achieve the greatest return on investment for the company. In order to improve project portfolio management, it is important to understand the challenges faced by most companies. Thus the report identified the top five challenges reported by their corporate survey respondents. These are listed below in order of priority:

1. Balancing resources usage across the portfolio
