Inspired Insight for Project Leaders

PMI’s thought leadership content tackles the big questions of the project management profession.

In a business world of constant change and disruption, project, program and portfolio management are the bridges that connect strategy to implementation.

While organizations refer to projects and programs by varied names and descriptors, they are in essence the way change happens and how work gets done.

Overarching these functions, project portfolio management enables executives to meet organizational goals and objectives through efficient decision making. Portfolio management is both a mindset and a competency that keeps organizations focused on priorities and change factors.
