Handling several projects at once means more than dealing with just multiple schedules; it involves multiple risks, multiple stakeholders, and multiple functional managers who allocate resources. The key to managing multiple projects expertly is to recognize priorities and delegate wisely – not an easy feat in today’s complex environment. To do that successfully, you need to understand what makes up your workload, as well as an understanding of how risk, human resources, and schedules must be integrated.
