Project portfolio management (PPM) has many moving parts. In Info-Tech's PPM thought model, there are five main processes that make up PPM; it is imperative that these processes are aligned to the expectations of PPM strategy, as laid out in Info-Tech's Develop a Project Portfolio Management Strategy blueprint.
Leadership buy-in is critical in installing or improving PPM. Use this PPM Strategy-Process Goals Translation Matrix Template to engage the executive layer or the project steering committee, who ultimately own the project portfolio, to set the goals, metrics, and targets. The PMO and/or the management layer will take away the results and develop an action plan for improving the PPM processes that satisfy the goals, metrics, and targets in this tool.
Use this tool as part of the full blueprint, Develop a Project Portfolio Management Strategy.
