Portfolio Management (PPM)

Project Portfolio Management (PPM) is a continuous cycle that includes
identification, selection and management of a collection of projects that
align with both key performance drivers and strategic objectives. PPM allows
organizations to choose the right projects for the business by analyzing
demand against capacity, identifying optimal sequencing and ensuring all
business investment objectives are being met for the most profitable
portfolio.
