International Project Management Day November 1, 2018

Free Webinar on Implementing Project Portfolio Management

The international project management day (IPM Day) is intended to encourage project based organizations worldwide or organizations who utilize project management methodologies to schedule some type of recognition event within their organizations or coordinated locally with others to truly demonstrate appreciation for the achievements of project managers and their teams.   In recognition of IPM Day we invite you to join the discussion on the newly released PMI® published book:

Implementing Project Portfolio Management: A Companion Guide to The Standard for Portfolio Management

This event was held on November 1, 2018, the video of the event which you can experience will be announced soon!

This book is a companion guide to Project Management Institute’s The Standard for Portfolio Management, currently in the Fourth Edition. The standard is now a principle-based standard that provides greater universality of applications. As a principle-based standard, the “how” of portfolio management is largely removed. While the “how” is context specific and therefore cannot be standardized, there is nevertheless value in understanding the various approaches. Implementing Project Portfolio Management: A Companion Guide to The Standard for Portfolio Management was written to address the “hows” that support the “what” of portfolio management.

As a companion guide to the current standard, this book is designed for three primary audience groups:

  • Business Executives – Part 1 of the book includes Chapter 1, which provides a comprehensive but high-level description of portfolio management, including the what, why, who, and how.  Other groups are encouraged to review Part 1 as well, to achieve an executive-level understanding of portfolio management.
  • Portfolio Leaders and Practitioners – Part 2 of the book, Chapters 2 to 8, offers an in-depth examination of the various performance domains discussed in the Standard for Portfolio Management – Fourth Edition. In addition, this book goes beyond the standard with additional domains and concepts that are in practice today. Each chapter offers new insights on how to apply the principles covered in the standard. As appropriate, selective tools and templates are introduced.
  • Portfolio Thinkers – Part 3, the final chapters, is designed for tinkerers and inquisitive professionals who want to look ahead and see the future of portfolios and some areas of latest development. Part 3 is a true work in progress.
