Project Portfolio Management (PPM) refers to a process used by project managers and project management organizations (PMOs) to analyze the potential return on undertaking a project. By organizing and consolidating every piece of data regarding proposed and current projects, project portfolio managers provide forecasting and business analysis for companies looking to invest in new projects.

As organizations reach higher levels of maturity in managing projects individually, they shift their focus to managing them collectively as a project portfolio. This transition seems to occur when you realize that projects are investments – not expenditures – requiring justification that they are aligned with organizational goals and will create value for the owners and other stakeholders of the organization. Managing project investments collectively brings coherence to implementing the strategic as well as operational initiatives and helps the organization create sustainable value in the long run. This course offers tools, techniques, and best practices for managing project portfolios. It presents a “how-to” methodology to design, build, and manage a portfolio.
