There are sometimes hundreds or even thousands of projects being carried out simultaneously. At a certain stage, there is a need for taking stock of all current projects and mapping out, for example, how much of the capacity is occupied by the project activities and what kind of investment budget is required.Methodologies to prioritize projects are becoming extremely important – and the need to control on-going projects is increasing.This means that management has to change its focus when developing a new management system and governance model.
