EPISODE 3: Capital Holding You Back? Maybe it is Constraints – The Value of Removing Constraints

In episode 3 of our 6 part series, we see how Kosatka identifies a key constraint, a commitment they have made to a joint venture partner to develop the West Gamma field. By using portfolio analysis, they determine that exiting the commitment could generate significantly more value than increasing capital investment across Kosatka. Armed with this understanding, Kosatka will approach its partner to examine an exit from the project.

Watch this webinar to learn how you can gain uncover hidden sources of value through the removal of visible and obscure constraints in your portfolio. Companies will often “throw more money” at a problem to realize their goals. However, more effective returns may be available by challenging other constraints than budgets. We will discuss how you can use portfolio techniques to identify and quantify the value of removing constraints that may hold you back from your goals.

Topics covered will include:

  • Identifying constraints in your portfolio
  • Evaluating the value of modifying or removing constraints
  • Crafting proposals to remove constraints
  • Comparing the benefits and cost of constraint modification to other alternatives
