Project portfolio management solutions – professional and efficient without Excel tables

Starting project planning with Excel is often the first step to professionalize project management: overview of currently running projects, sorting by demand possible.  

However, growing complexity of projects and the desire to organize them into portfolios soon leads to a "death by Excel". The more efficient and smarter way works best with a modern solution project portfolio management. 

What can project portfolio management solutions do better? 

Teams that utilize spreadsheets and other tools to track their portfolio can spend hours reconciling data from multiple sources in order to create even basic portfolio reports. Data from spreadsheets and isolated tools are static and often out-of-date by the time the information is reported to senior management. This is why businesses are increasingly turning to modern project portfolio management solutions to overcome these challenges. With the right PPM platform in place, portfolio managers can accelerate timelines across the board thanks to increased visibility and real-time scheduling tools.  

This insight helps reduce costs considerably, giving portfolio managers clarity into spending – as well as which projects are valuable, and which are lesser priorities. project portfolio management solutions also help organizations make better investment decisions. It creates an environment that leads to predictable and repeatable project success. This can be ensured by using best practices, principles, and proven methodologies during the project life cycle by establishing a PMO and using the project portfolio management solution to guide through the process.
