Call it what you like — SharePoint, Intuit, Central Desktop — project portfolio management is here to stay. A few months ago, Gartner predicted that the role of Project Portfolio Management (PPM) would begin to evolve from just managing business projects to managing value and change. As business strategies transform to focus on both people and technologies, PPM has the potential to help the enterprise get things done.
A recent article published by Alex Adamopoulos, CEO and Paul Dolman-Darrall, Executive Vice President for Global Delivery and Strategy at Emergn, an international PPM and agile consultancy based in London, lists 5 reasons why PPM will matter to CIOs in 2012. Among them, the authors cite improvements to workflow and idea sharing, as well as increased alignment between IT and the bottom line.
