We helped the senior management team of a technology company implement Project Portfolio Management (PPM) as an ongoing business process, based on investment practices, in order to ensure strategic alignment of projects and maximisation of value.
Some of the deliverables of the project activities we led:
- PPM working group with representatives from core functions and regions
- Standards for the selection, funding and governance of projects
- Basic supporting processes and tools, using common technologies (iShare and Excel)
- Pilot in one of the functions, in select countries
- Roll out across core functions and regions and then switch to Business As Usual (that is PPM as an ongoing business process)
- Plan for “Phase 2” (tailored implementation of a PPM technology platform for advanced supporting processes and tools)
It took us a year (circa) to design, develop and roll out the PPM process across functions and regions.
