If you’re a project & program management executive, we suspect you’re extremely busy chasing down status updates, compiling reports, and drumming up management support and organizational adoption. If all of the follow apply to you, there is no need to view this presentation:

-Your project portfolio is completely aligned with corporate strategy.

-You track portfolio level benefits using financial metrics validated by your CFO.

-You routinely measure your contribution to the organization’s key performance indicators.

-Your governance process supports periodic reviews to re-balance the portfolio.

-Your PPM software is well adopted by project managers.

But if this doesn’t reflect your PMO/PPM reality, you may want to view these slides and the accompanying webinar to learn how to create a top-down framework. A Top Down Approach will help you to establish portfolio management objectives, measure progress against those objectives, and respond to the inevitable shifts in budget, priority, and strategy. You may even come away convinced that a business-driven approach to PPM makes sense for your organization.

  • Of course companies use PPM to drive strategy & change, but many of the tools out there are too tactically focused…or rigid in the sense of mandating “bottom-up” deployments that can delay value and frustrate users. We advocate a top-down to accelerate value. This chart contracts the different perspectives…A business-driven emphasis focuses PPM on the programs that have a direct impact on results vs. more tactical processes like time tracking.Those higher value capabilities tend to be at the portfolio level, including alignment with corporate goals and demand management. (Susan will show you…) There’s not much point in completing a project 25% sooner, if it’s not important to your organization…. This idea applies to how the software is implemented too. We see more success with an incremental approach that starts at the portfolio level rather than a big bang approach that extends the implementation indefinitely.A business-driven approach encourages user adoption without imposing excessive overhead on users to the point they don’t update their projects.
  • Fortunate to get consistently positive feedback from all major industry analysts.In you haven’t seen them yet, Gartner just released 2 major reports as part of what they call the PPM Market Universe – their research reflects PPM expansion outside of IT , the proliferation of SaaS or Cloud, and the need to demonstrate business value.MarketScope rated 30 vendors capabilities to support PPM – no longer limited to IT which is exactly how we’re seeing PPM expand into business PowerSteering rec’d highest rating of Strong Positive.Rating based on criteria that drive value and PPM ROI: Market Responsiveness and Track RecordRapid ImplementationTime to ValueEase of UseIn contrast, the Magic Quadrant is focused on IT Portfolio Management (more of a top-down emphasis) and the capabilities that allow CIOs to make better decisions.
  • Let’s move from the theoretical to an actual business example ... We’re not going to show you a bunch of features. Instead in this first scenario, Susan is going to show how to set up a portfolio that reflects your corporate goals, models your organizational structure so you can see how each line of business is contributing.
  • In this demonstration, Susan showed us a top-down view of how PPM is applied
  • I’m sure you’ll find this next scenario very relatable….Susan is going to show you how to accommodate a budget reduction by examining a number of portfolio performance indicators.
  • In this demonstration, Susan showed a number of ways to handle the inevitable changes…
