Formalize Project Portfolio Management for Small Enterprise
Make big gains in small steps.
An immature or non-existent PPM strategy causes:
- Organizations to devote time and money to be wasted on cancelled projects, unutilized or over-allocated resources, and poorly prioritized projects.
- An ever-growing project backlog that never gets addressed.
- Organizational confusion and inefficiency.
A right-sized PPM strategy will result in:
- Frequent review of current, accurate, and consistent report data so the organization has visibility into all the work in progress.
- The ability to alleviate over-allocation of staff and align resource assignments with skills.
- The capability for IT to align intake with capacity and prioritize the highest value initiatives.
