#SOOP-9 #pm_ngt BAU is the portfolio of ALL uses of equity & debt to return utility to stakeholders

An organisation is a collection of types of capital whose interactions generate value. If there is a return on investment then it makes sense to make the biggest possible investment but reality is that access to capital is limited so capital must be rationed to those uses with the most bang for buck

The demands on capital span all the day-to-day (or business-as-usual) activities that generate revenue as well as all investments in change. The trade-off between “Run the business” versus “Change the business” – the limiting for of capital is most frequntly skilled people’s time (#pm_ngt includes bandwidth analysis of people and ability to cope with change)

#pm_ngt RTBvsCTB

The central truth of Kaplan & Norton’s balanced scorecard is that capital powers the business’ activties. activity is either focussed on benefit today or benefit tomorrow

The real discipline is less about project management, or at least not in isolation, its about portfolio management. Portfolio management considers the sum total of demands on capital allocation between sustaining bau and delivering change (or future-state-business-as-usual).
