Ruediger Suess works in DLR – the German Aerospace Center at the Think Tank. The think tank was created in July 2017 and its task is to address long-term, strategic, complex, and interdisciplinary/cross sectional trends and questions based on data driven analysis. Ruediger’s role is to look at these challenges and results from a strategical and innovation ecosystem point of view, regarding implications, opportunities but also strategic risks. Before that he was a project (portfolio) manager at the Strategy and International Relations department at DLR in various functions concerning corporate strategy, long term positioning, business development and inhouse consulting.

“Doing the right things right!” That is one of the main aspects of portfolio management. But how this translates into an institution or company while implementing it? The challenge of implementing project portfolio management is to to look at the theory guidelines while executing it for a practical use. We look at the experiences in the implementation of project portfolio management at DLR – the German Aerospace center – from a best practice to a best adopted practice. The interfaces of project portfolio management and business analysis will also be considered
from a view of a practitioner.
