Setting up Project Portfolio Management

Project Portfolio Management or "PPM" as it is known, is a hot subject among organisations who are engaged in Project Management / execution activities. 

PPM helps organisations to avoid 're-inventing the wheel' every time. According to Wikipedia definition:

"Project Portfolio Management (PPM) is the centralized management of the processes, methods, and technologies used by project managers and project management offices (PMOs) to analyze and collectively manage current or proposed projects based on numerous key characteristics. The objectives of PPM are to determine the optimal resource mix for delivery and to schedule activities to best achieve an organization’s operational and financial goals ― while honouring constraints imposed by customers, strategic objectives, or external real-world factors.
PPM provides program and project managers in large, program/project-driven organizations with the capabilities needed to manage the time, resources, skills, and budgets necessary to accomplish all interrelated tasks. It provides a framework for issue resolution and risk mitigation, as well as the centralized visibility to help planning and scheduling teams to identify the fastest, cheapest, or most suitable approach to deliver projects and programs.
Thankfully there are well developed on-line tools and expert support readily available to those who are aiming to set-up PPM in their organisations. ITM Platform is one of the industry leaders in this segment.
