Presented by: Eclipse Project Portfolio Management
Duration: 1 hour 1 PDUs Credits: Category C 1 PDU- Free PDU
Project Portfolio Management (PPM) is a strategic decision making approach aimed at maximizing overall returns on project investments. By focusing on the â€œrightâ€ projects, it is expected that there will be improved organization alignment to strategic plans as well as optimized utilization of financial and human resources.
Unfortunately, there is a significant amount of misinformation in the marketplace about PPM and many organizations that have attempted to implement these practices have failed. Of course, vendors stand ready to â€œhelpâ€ unsuspecting executives with snake oil claims of â€œsilver bulletâ€ process or tool purchases to achieve PPM nirvana.
This webinar will provide you with a solid grounding of PPM principles – costs, benefits, critical success factors and lessons learned. These will help you decide whether pursuing PPM improvement is a valuable and realistic goal for your organization. This presentation will also improve your knowledge of the PPM lifecycle and provide you with the key decisions and approaches necessary to launch a successful PPM initiative.
