Written by ten successful project portfolio managers from companies
including AAA, Boeing, Franklin Templeton, Johnson & Johnson,
Safeway, and the UK Government, this easy-to-follow guide takes you
through the project portfolio management process. It's based on
what actually works, giving you a clear road map and the tools
needed to determine the optimal mix and sequencing of projects in
order to meet your organization's goals. The book begins by
explaining basic PPM principles and why PPM is more critical than
ever for business success. This introduction is followed by a
story, tracking the experiences of a manager new to PPM as he
discovers the issues that all of us face in trying to get traction
with our PPM initiatives. In answering the questions our story
raises, the book then details each step of the PPM process, using
cases and examples drawn from the authors' first hand experience to
help you address such key questions as:
Which projects should our organization invest in?
How can we optimize our organization's capacity?
How well are we executing the PPM process?
Can our organization absorb all the changes that our PPM plan
Are we achieving all the expected benefits?
