Slash and burn as £2billion of projects cut!

Yesterday,  I ran a project management course and spoke about the need for companies to look at their overall portfolio of projects and challenge the list asking among other things:

  • what are the priorities within the overall list?
  • are there some nice to have rather than essentials?

We had an interesting debate and I suggested that cuts to the list would help focus on delivery of the overall company agenda.

A little later I looked on line at the BBC website and cutting was the key word: “Coalition government axes £2bn of projects” screamed the headlines.

The group looked on reading and you can find out more here.
