Demands to a corporate Project/Portfolio management system

We recommend the bright in-depth research by our ResearchGate colleagues. Their work deals with the fuzzy analysis of demands of a corporate Portfolio/Project management system.

In fact this work is a very rare attempt of scientific mathematics (fuzzy logic) based analysis instead of expert one concerning information systems of a corporate level.

New program manager’s role in a company

Mr. Andy Jordan in his article at the projectmanagement.com discusses about the future of program management.

I recommend this very interesting and motivating article to think about program manager as a business manager, whose role is not controlling project outputs and deliverables, but in a wider context search for business opportunities for the company, and drive the organization to these new frontiers.

A small cite:

“Program managers play a critical role in helping an organization achieve success. That’s not going to change in the future as long as there is recognition that the role is evolving and shifting. Organizations should not expect to oversee a shift in project management without also seeing a similar change in related disciplines—and program management is an obvious example”.
