Richard M. Bayney

To many of us, Portfolio Management is a logical extension of Project Management. Yet, we cannot apply exactly the same principles to Portfolio Management as we do to Project Management. So, how do we maximize the value of a portfolio consisting of many projects (and programs) subject to constrained budgetary and human resources on an ongoing basis? Join us at the May Monthly Program Meeting and learn about a new framework for maximizing portfolio value from Richard M. Bayney, Ph.D.

A classic technique used to manage a portfolio of projects (and programs) is to prioritize such assets on one or more quantitative (e.g., NPV) and qualitative (e.g., strategic value) criteria and to ‘draw the line’ when one or the other resource runs out. But, how do we know that the sum of all projects ‘above the line’ represents the highest value that can be created i.e., the best utilization of those resources? To better understand how constrained budgetary and human resources can be best utilized in a portfolio of non-discretionary and discretionary assets, a new Portfolio Management framework - CREOPMTM - is described. This framework has been utilized successfully across multiple industries that include Pharmaceuticals & Biotechnology, Consumer Goods, and Healthcare Risk Insurance.

Richard M. Bayney is President and Founder of Project & Portfolio Value Corporation (PPVC) a consulting company that provides Training Services in Project, Portfolio, Resource and Risk Management and delivers customized services in a focused spectrum of areas including Enterprise Resource and Portfolio Management and Strategic and Business Planning.

Prior to Johnson & Johnson, he held positions at Bristol-Myers Squibb, Bayer Corporation, Merck & Company, and Bayer Corporation/A.G.

Dr. Bayney is a frequent speaker in the area of "Risk Analysis, Asset Evaluation, and Portfolio Management in Drug Development" He is also an Advisory Board member to Cambridge Healthtech Institute. He holds M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from London University and an M.B.A. from Columbia University.
