Many organizations do not realize the level of involvement required for evaluating and adopting project portfolio management (PPM) software leading to wasted effort for everyone involved. This white paper addresses the challenges (and opportunities) of implementing PPM in three parts: assessing PPM needs, building a business case for PPM, and creating an evaluation checklist.
The objective of this paper is to equip you with the knowledge you need to be successful in your PPM journey – which begins long before implementation – by creating enthusiastic buy-in from all relevant stakeholders to its necessity.
1. Architect your PPM needs and evaluate your organizational readiness.
2. Build a business case for PPM - creating goals, understanding processes and constrains, addressing the right stakeholders and selling the ROI.
3. Inspection - create a PPM checklist of requirements that ensures your PPM aligns to your business goals and helps you avoid common pitfalls.
