Clarification regarding Portfolio Project and Program

Postby sivapriya Tue Oct 29, 2019 5:03 am

Hi Experts,

I have just started going through the Izenbridge course videos and got a doubt in Chapter1. As per my understanding Project can exist under Portfolio directly instead of Program. So, For Program is it mandatory to exist under Portfolio?
And can there be a project independently without Portfolio? Is Portfolio mandatory to exist in Organization? If not what is the alternative entity for Portfolio in a Organization? Request your help in understanding better. THanks in advance.

Regards,
Sivapriya.

No it is not mandatory for a program to be under portfolio, it can exist on its own

And can there be a project independently without Portfolio?
Yes there can be project without a portfolio as well , a stand alone project initiated for a specific task which does not fall under any portfolio
Is Portfolio mandatory to exist in Organization?
No its not mandatory, Organization can run with only projects, or line function
If not what is the alternative entity for Portfolio in a Organization? Request your help in understanding better. THanks in advance.
