Seven Ways to Energize Project Portfolio Management

The Challenge Every enterprise invests resources (money; time) in projects and every enterprise has a process through which those projects are selected and funded. But where did that process come from? Does it serve the best interests of the enterprise? Are all funded projects fully aligned with current Business Strategies? Are the cost, return and risk known for every project? Is there a process for terminating projects that are failing or for which there is no longer need? The Solution Project Portfolio Management (PPM) is the primary business process that underlies execution of an organization's Business Strategy. It is through PPM that we prioritize, fund, oversee and evaluate our projects. Effective PPM ensures that we do the right projects at the right time, and it helps us to maximize the Business Value that we obtain from each project. This portfolio management workshop explains the purpose and benefits of PPM, and presents seven steps that you can take to make PPM more effective in your organization.
