00:00:36 - Meet the Panellists

00:40:00 - What should the top three considerations for a portfolio manager be in constituting the portfolio?
00:46:00 - If the corporate portfolio includes all projects and programmes how do we manage it in large complex organisations with hundreds if not thousands of projects and programmes?
