  11. 11. PPM - Goals  Helps the organisation to make the best use of its resources  Enables the removal of low value projects from the portfolio  Ensures that all new and existing projects are aligned with the organisation’s mission, goals and objectives  Produces and maintains a comprehensive listing of all projects which the organisation is undertaking  Develops a “bigger picture view” and a deep understanding of the project collection as a whole  Creates an “objective” methodology for identifying, ranking, prioritising and selecting new projects  Ensures that a healthy balance across different types of projects with different cost, schedule, complexity and risk profiles is maintained 11

  14. 14. PPM - Limitation  Adds another layer of bureaucracy to organisations  Difficult to perform in environments marked by frequent change  Tendency to rely too heavily on PPM tools / software for decisions  May cause conflict, confusion and stress (eg. due to shifting priorities and resources)  Could require a “cultural change” in the organisation (overcoming resistance by some managers and getting sustained commitment by senior management)  Good project selection requires large amounts of quality information which is often not always available at the beginning of pre-selection stage  Cannot be effective without well-documented project plans, accurate estimates of resource requirements and resources consumed 14

  41. 41. PPM – Stages (Contd.)  Stage 4 - Development  Detailed process mapping & assigning the correct metrics  Establish the new or altered relationships  Stage 5 - Testing and Validation  Undertakes pilot testing and verifies details with the business case  Provides the feedback loop and lessons, to minimise risks  Stage 6 – Launch  Implements changes and fine tune to support full market demand  Contingency scenarios activated in the event of a significant disruption  Stage 7 – Benefit Realisation  Examine benefits realised or not  Use lesson leant for the next round of product or services innovation 41
