I recently heard the term "portfolio of changes." Is that a concept or tangible asset you recommend companies create?
The portfolio of changes is a tangible project or dashboard. How an organization gets that insight can take multiple approaches. Organizations often have a process to view all ongoing projects. Sometimes this is by department, or it can be facilitated through a project management office (PMO). With a formal PMO, there is typically a project portfolio management process to include intake and understanding of resource needs for a project. The intake should include change-specific criteria so that dashboards of stakeholder impact, timing, and resource needs can be created and used for decision-making.
Avaap recently worked with a non-profit organization to stand up a change management office and developed a change portfolio view of all changes across the organization. In the absence of a PMO, this view provided senior leadership with greater appreciation of how much change was going on and the impact to different stakeholder groups.
