Portfolio & Program Managers 2018-08-21T16:46:34+00:00

Portfolio and Program Managers

Constantly tasked to compare competing objectives and priorities (i.e., compare apples and oranges), portfolio and program managers have one of the most complicated jobs within the Project Management Office (PMO): resource optimization. In the early days of Project and Portfolio Management (PPM), this endeavor was much simpler; team members typically worked in one location and projects were somewhat cut and dry. In today’s dynamic PMO environment, circumstances have changed greatly; distributed workforces reign and projects can vary from custom development work to mergers and acquisitions (M&A) assistance.

Aligning projects to organizational objectives is crucial, but current information and data are often messy, and there is considerable uncertainty regarding future events that influence results.  Even the most talented program and portfolio managers could use some help resolving uncertainties and making critical resource allocation decisions.
