The value of Project and Portfolio Management tools to strategy and decision-making processes.

Margaux Grandelis Posted 02 November 2020

In today’s ever-changing environment, the main challenge for Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) is to decide which projects to execute, and which not. This is where PPM tools come into play. By providing project managers with an overview of past, present and future projects, PPM tools help prioritizing high-value projects, taking into consideration constraints like interdependencies, resource availability and strategic alignment1.
