Stuart Easton, CEO of TransparentChoice

Stuart Easton is the founder and CEO of TransparentChoice. He is on a mission to help PMOs to make high impact decisions faster with decision science techniques. Clients include the US House of Representatives, Suzano, and McCormick.

He is also a guest lecturer on project prioritization at the University of Oxford, and speaks at various PMO conferences and events. He focuses on how PMOs can deliver strategic value, identify waste, and eliminate pet projects.

TransparentChoice helps project portfolio leaders select the portfolio that will add maximum value to the business. And now, Stuart and his team are working on new iterations of their product that are powered by Artificial Intelligence.

That’s why I wanted to speak with him about Decision-making AI for Project Portfolios.

What Kit does a Project Manager Need?

I asked Project Managers in a couple of forums what material things you need to have, to do your job as a Project Manager. They responded magnificently. I compiled their answers into a Kit list. I added my own.
