When you’re managing projects across a portfolio, there are many moving parts you need to track. There’s the strategic alignment, change management, budget allocation, and resource management across the enterprise. Plus, project portfolio management can inherently mean more risks and constraints, all of which require robust PPM tracking tools that can be extended to multiple teams. Without the proper tools and techniques, these problems can become quickly overwhelming.

What is Project Portfolio Management Software?

Project portfolio management is a project and program management technique employed by project managers and PMOs in order to plan, manage and execute numerous projects without abandoning strategic alignment or constraints.

By combining projects into a portfolio, PPM managers can analyze statistics for several projects at once to better allocate resources, tasks and funding. Without this top-level view, it can be easy to lose the control required to balance several projects while meeting budgets and deadlines.

Before you take on a project portfolio, it’s critical to equip yourself with the best project portfolio management tools available to handle the layers involved when executing several projects simultaneously.
