What is multi-project management?

Multi-project management (also known as project portfolio management) involves the coordinated management and control of several projects within an organization, company or unit. Multi-project management is also used to make decisions about whether a new or additional project fits into the current or future portfolio. It is a method of ensuring that all projects are carried out effectively and efficiently and provides a holistic view of an organization's project landscape. Multi-project management can be divided into program management and project portfolio management. Program management involves several projects in programs that have a common goal. Projects in portfolios are usually separate from each other and often compete for resources.

The project portfolio

A project portfolio is a collection of projects, programs and/or initiatives carried out by an organization or company. These projects can vary in terms of their objectives, resources, priorities and strategic direction. The aim of a project portfolio is to ensure that an organization's resources are used effectively and efficiently to achieve its strategic goals.

Managing a project portfolio requires careful selection, monitoring and control of projects and programs to ensure that they deliver the intended benefits and that resources are allocated appropriately. Portfolio management practices help to minimize risks, take advantage of opportunities and ensure that the organization achieves its strategic goals.

Difference between multi-project management and project management

The main difference between multi-project management and project management lies in their scope of application and in the priorities set in each case.

Project management

Project management focuses on the planning, implementation and monitoring of a single project. By definition, a project is a time-limited undertaking that has a starting point and a specific end point. In project management, a dedicated project team works on the realization of the project goals. The resources, including employees, budget and time, are usually focused on this specific project. Success in project management is measured by whether the defined project goal has been achieved.

Multi-project management

Multi-project management deals with the coordinated management and control of several projects and considers the totality of all projects that are carried out in parallel or in succession. Multi-project management offers a holistic view of an organization's project landscape. It prioritizes, monitors and controls projects in accordance with the organizational goals. Among other things, multi-project management should ensure that resources are optimally distributed across all projects and that potential risks to projects are taken into account so that any risks that arise can be responded to.

In research and development departments, multi-project management techniques can help to coordinate innovation projects and product developments. Consulting companies use multi-project management to manage different client projects simultaneously and ensure that resources are used optimally.
