Project portfolio optimization gamble informed risks 

You have probably heard the phrases “cannot fail,” “too big to fail,” and “bet the company” used to describe major capital projects such as nuclear power plants, gas pipelines, LNG facilities, and others.

For these types of projects, wouldn’t it be nice to know that your decision to select or proceed with a project is the best decision for the company or organization? Wouldn’t it also be nice to know how to optimize the project screening and selection process throughout the project delivery life cycle?


This paper addresses these questions by highlighting some of the challenges and pitfalls of inefficient capital allocation and portfolio optimization. It also provides example approaches and practices for identifying, screening, selecting, and budgeting projects throughout the project life cycle.
