About PPM Execution:

PPM Execution is a portfolio management blog for sharing current thoughts about project portfolio management. This portfolio management blog also gives me the opportunity to share  articles and white papers which contain great information and provide business management tools. There are very few websites designed for portfolio management practitioners and my intention is to fill a gap on the web.

  1. Well done Tim, and excellent site!
    This is interesting and important topic as well. So many organisations, with the very best of intentions, create Project Overload and this then becomes Corporate “Initiativitis”. It is like adding a couple of spoons of sand to the engine oil! It just clogs up the engine of business growth.
    I have a background in Project / Programme management, Change Management as well as Lean as a Business System. I would argue that every enterprise needs to develop its own Business Operating and Development System, or BODS as I call it! This overall BODS has to be able to manage and balance the business change agenda, for both Continuous Improvement and Breakthrough Change. Within Lean it is the Policy Deployment process that drives engagement of all business associates in the process of aligning Strategic Execution with Lean based Operational Excellence.

  2. Such a useful blog, Tim! I’m a last-year student, interesting about PPM. I will be making my undergrad thesis in Prioritization in Government sector. Thanks for some knowledge you’ve shared! I think, I wanna have some discussion with you sometime, if it’s doesn’t matter to you.
