Project Portfolio Management
Project based organizations seldom have the luxury of managing just one project at a time. Projects invariably exist in an environment of competing projects, not just in terms of managing on a day to day basis, but also when it comes to selecting between competing project investment opportunities. Project Portfolio Management (PPM) is a term that covers various approaches to treating projects as part of an overall portfolio. Most PPM tools and methods attempt to establish a set of values, techniques and technologies that enable visibility, and provide some degree of standardization enable organizations to manage the evolution of projects from concept to completion.
