Vivek borrowed portfolio management tools from the stock market to create an ecosystem of accountability and investment optimization in the selection and management of IT projects.

A team of Portfolio Managers evaluated individual project performance in terms of customer value, budget and schedule variance and optimized their portfolio of projects to maximum return.

Vivek achieved these results in 6 months, at zero net cost to the District of Columbia, by using existing staff and simply redirecting their time. CIOs from the states of California, New York and Texas have expressed interest in adopting Vivek’s innovations.
