Many IT leaders have a project portfolio management (PPM) program in place but know that it could function better. They’d also like to put the best tools to work but can’t take the time to research the hundreds that are available. In this webinar replay, you’ll learn how to get better results and have a more effective PPM program.

Agenda:

  • PPM and its value for business
  • PPM tool benefits
  • Possible PPM implementation pitfalls
  • The five steps to more effective PPM
  • Live question and answer session

Ciber’s client-focused and tailored Project Portfolio Management services help you prioritize your projects and ensure your portfolio mix is aligned with business goals. Optimized PPM programs can ensure your resources are allocated for effectiveness and not under or over utilized.

Project Insight understands that PPM software needs to include powerful features but not be difficult for team members to use. Learn how a tool that includes features you need, but not ones you’ll never use, is the best approach for most organizations.
