Using Project Portfolio Management to Maximize Project Value

The Challenge
Every enterprise invests resources (money; time) in projects. And everyone wants project success, but that success sometimes can prove to be elusive. Why do so many of our projects run into trouble? Are we really getting the value out of our projects that we intend? Are we even choosing to fund the right projects? Do all of our projects support the business strategies of the organization? Are we making the most of our project investment?

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 helps us to maximize the Business Value that we obtain from each project. This management workshop explains the purpose and benefits of PPM, and offers specific steps that you can take to put PPM to work in your organization.
