The Value of Combining Robust PPM with Lightweight Work Execution [Video]

Most businesses want PPM solutions that can be deployed in the IT organization run by certified, full-time product managers and can be deployed within IT, product development, or professional services departments. The bottom line is to drive the right projects and initiatives for on time, on budget delivery.

But what about the accidental project manager? We already know there is a lot of unstructured work occurring outside the PMO’s structured work world. When it comes to a broader work and resource management perspective, many organizations need to create a collaborative work environment.

For starters, both Planview® Portfolios and Planview® PPM Pro are great project portfolio management solutions designed to help advance maturity levels – from novice to black belt. These solutions empower PMOs and centers of excellence to make better strategic commitments to resources and measure ROI more effectively. Why not take it one step further to entire enterprise? By rolling out Planview Projectplace®, a collaborative work management solution, to every accidental project manager, the business can:

  • Nurture a great team environment – all while delivering on execution
  • Reap the benefits of a robust PPM solution: planning, capacity planning, strategic planning, project execution, and resource management
  • Foster collaboration – all while getting work done more efficiently

The awesome part is that you can extend collaborative work management to every part of the organization. This means marketing, sales, legal, facilities, and procurement can leverage ProjectPlace in a combination of both integrated to your PPM software, for those team members working on PMO-driven projects, and in standalone mode, to improve productivity on every day work done by teams across the company. Built for the accidental project manager, ProjectPlace is perfect for those who want lightweight work execution and project management.

As a result of this powerful combination, your organization can have the best of both worlds – strategic planning and collaborative work management. To learn more about how ProjectPlace supports accidental project managers, watch the demo.
