Project Portfolio Management

Project Portfolio Management (PPM) goes beyond the typical project management approach to offer a set of proven business practices that can help executives, program managers, and project managers bring projects into alignment with the strategies, resources, and executive oversight of the overall enterprise.

Today's episode of The Project Management Podcast™ comes a few days late and it is focused on project management methodologies. A listener wrote in and asked for help. He is new to the field, finds the various methodologies sometimes confusing and is not really sure what all of these templates are nor where to find them. We look at six helpful resources about project management methodologies and templates.
