Enterprise Project Portfolio Management

Successful Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (EPPM)
hinges on measurability and transparency.


A consistent framework is the key to separating what works from what doesn’t. You want to focus your resources only on the most successful programs that are best-aligned with your overall business goals. However, it can be challenging to manage performance consistency across large scale investment portfolios without an effective approach.

What is Enterprise Project Portfolio Management?


For businesses that are responsible for many concurrent projects, the Enterprise Project Portfolio Management role oversees performance and investments for programs across the organization. Where Enterprise Project Management (EPM) focuses on performance for a single project area or group of related projects, EPPM is about making investment decisions on which projects to keep, fix, hold or cut broadly across the enterprise.

Our experts are skilled at implementing process improvements that actually work for your project portfolio. We can help you focus your limited project management resources on the metrics that matter the most, allowing you to bring the most value to your organization. We deliver EPPM Solutions to businesses in the following industries:

Communications | Financial Services | Insurance | Life Sciences
