Your business demands you to deliver lots of projects. Usually, it’s more than you can handle. Thus you need to prioritize. Yes, you need to prioritize to your budget, but that’s the easy part – money is only one dimension and adds up linearly. But how do you decide where to invest your organization’s resources? They make up a complex matrix of roles, skills, and their availability for projects constantly changes over time.
Which project should start first, second, third? How do you secure the right skills and capacity for each project, if their start dates are not aligned on a Portfolio-level?
Can you discuss with the business the optimal start and finish dates of their projects, presenting the facts about availability of resources in future? Can you discuss the dependency in between the projects on a resource level?
Instead the planning teams take compromises while planning. They produce the Portfolio Plan manually.
They use their hunch, their spreadsheets, all manual and hard work, subject to many
errors and misunderstandings.
Projects are late.
Company loses time.
Managers compete for skills and resources.

That is a unique flexibility given to the planning teams by Aangine.

As the Project Requests come into the Portfolio, only high-level information is available. The early step following the business prioritization is an estimate of time and effort needed to deliver.
