Applies to: Project Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-08-05

This white paper is written from an end user’s perspective to discuss the extensive Project Portfolio Management (PPM) capability in Microsoft Project Server 2010. It is not enough to complete individual projects, or even related programs on time, within scope, and on budget. Today's business environment requires that the work executed by an organization supports the organization's strategic business objectives and goals. This paper explores the topic of PPM from the top down in identifying the importance of pertinent business drivers and how those form vision, goals, objectives, and the eventual roadmap to project selection. And from the bottom-up perspective, the white paper shows the powerful features now within Project Server 2010 that are indispensible in matching these drivers to the appropriate projects and programs.

Microsoft Project 2010 was built for the business user. It uses advanced technology that lets end users and project stakeholders do the following:

  1. Identify and map key business drivers that encourage the concise definition of strategic goals and objectives for an organization

  2. Ensure that project and program selection is an objective, data-driven process

  3. Select, execute, and manage the appropriate initiatives

  4. Illustrate the value of PPM regardless of what type or size of organization
