Project Portfolio Management Demonstration and Training Videos

The videos on this page demonstrate many of the features that you can use in your project portfolio management program, including how to create decision models, build portfolios, prioritize your projects using Monte Carlo simulations, and optimize your portfolios.

You can see an index page with a text-listing of all the videos by clicking here.

If you're new to Optsee®, we recommend watching these 3 videos first, in order:

1) Making Objective Comparisons in Project Portfolio Management: This video uses a car-purchasing decision to give you an overview of the most basic decision analysis methodology that Optsee®uses for prioritizing projects. More advanced Optsee® features, like Monte Carlo Simulations and optimizations, build on this fundamental methodology.

2) Predicting Project Portfolio Value Using Simulations: This video shows you how you can use easily run your portfolios in thousands of different models to get a much more insightful and meaningful picture of your individual projects' value and of your whole portfolio value.

3) Winning the Lottery of Project Portfolio Management by Using Real Optimization: There are over 50 million possible winning combinations in a 60-ball 6-to-win lottery. In a 40-project portfolio, there are over 1 trillion possible subsets of projects! This video shows you how can you find an optimal subset of projects that will deliver the most value to you while not exceeding your capital, risk, resource, and time constraints.

Important Note: The videos below were created using Optsee® versions 4 and earlier.While the principles of portfolio optimization and prioritization remain the same, many of the features, charts, and forms have improved significantly.
