Project Portfolio Management, or PPM, gives a company's top leadership the ability to track and evaluate the progress of disparate projects the organization is undertaking.

And make judgments on whether its resources are being wisely and effectively invested.

PPM looks at your entire collection of projects as a whole and determines if your collective activities are moving your company along the path set out in your strategic plan and your goals.

A PPM system can assure that project teams are fully aware of strategic goals and that the work being done is the work the company wants to be done.
