Project Portfolio Management (PPM) is as much about prioritizing project deliverables as it is about communicating priorities to the stakeholders involved. Carefully conveying the appropriate messages to all parties will ultimately determine the successful results of a PPM methodology put in place. Visibility to stakeholders in a consistent manner coupled with a standard approach to delivering the details of project performance and business cases to launch new projects ensure better results in stakeholder buy-in.
There is no better example than Hollywood when it comes to conveying a consistent message to its audience (i.e. its stakeholders). In this vein, this episode will examine how visibility delivered in a consistent manner can sustain the success to both a portfolio of projects and/or a single project to its stakeholders - regardless of their celebrity status .
Our show is divided into 2 segments.
In Part 1, we will be talking to industry insider, Kris Reynolds, who has over 10 years of project management experience and has led numerous projects in healthcare and software application development.
