Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Selection of right sets of projects is considerably critical for organizations to successfully achieve their competitive advantages and corporate strategies. Due to limited resources and dynamic changes in business environment, this kind of selection is quite challenging for organizations. Beside one hundred selection tools and techniques, academics and practitioners have studied and recommended complex selection frameworks to facilitate the selection of right projects. However, these theoretical frameworks are not applied by private corporations in Vietnam. Therefore, this dissertation is intended to better understand the academic and practical literature about project portfolio selection; study current practices of project selection that private corporations in Vietnam are using; and propose a framework that is beneficially adaptable to these private corporations. A multiple-case study strategy accessing qualitative data through observations and semi-structure interviews is designed to investigate how private corporations select their project portfolio under the current contexts of booming economy in Vietnam to ensure successful realization of their growth and development strategy. The recommendations resulted from literature review and investigations do not only support the investigated corporations to improve the quantity and quality of their investment project portfolio(s) but also facilitate possible adaptation to project portfolio selection by other private corporations.
