Abstract

Project Portfolio Management (PPM) focus on the integration and alignment of projects with the business operation in order to achieve most value and cost-efficiency for the investment in projects. PPM is often a challenge and especially so for improvement projects where PPM is considerably underdeveloped. In this paper, we present an approach that combines the ImprovAbility model and assessment with a version of a CMMI assessment developed by the Danish company Whitebox. This approach was developed in the world-leading Wind Turbine Company Vestas. The paper presents and discusses this new way of evaluating a portfolio of improvement projects and combine this evaluation with the effect they have on the CMMI maturity level. Further, the paper demonstrates how the combination of a strong senior management requirement for improved maturity and the focus on getting the most value out of PPM made it possible for Vestas to become “better at getting better”.
