Killing your babies for growth – Real world Challenges in Portfolio decisions, 18 June 2014


On June 18th, 2014, EDPN hosts another event in its series on professional decision making. This time, the focus is on Portfolio Management, and we will explore it from the decision making angle. As our keynote, we have Michael Menke, flying in from the US for us, to share results from his global Portfolio Management benchmarking work. Michael is also a veteran in the Strategic Decision Making community. To inspire and translate into practice we have two companies presenting their challenges in product and project portfolio management: NXP semiconductors and Philips Healthcare. Join us for this exciting session and register at:
