Thinking Portfolio PPM is a strategic management tool. It allows the management of the whole project portfolio from project inception to follow-up. Thinking Portfolio PPM offers a simple interface to view, manage and report the entirety of an organization’s projects. It allows different units and departments use the same database. In this way, everyone gets their own portfolio but, at the same time, the information is reportable at the enterprise level. Individuals can even have a portfolio of the projects that they are personally involved in.
