Studies and research that prove the importance of project management as a strategic opportunity to bring improvement in business development.

In the constant changing and interrupted world of a business project, program and portfolio management are the links that join strategy to implementation.

While associations and organization refer projects and programs by various names and descriptions, they are significant in the way they bring change and the way they get the work done.

Encompassing these functions, project portfolio management allows professionals to achieve organizational aims and goals through proficient resolution making plans. Portfolio management is both a frame of mind and a skill that keeps organizations determined on priorities and transformation factors.

Since the year 2006, we have graphed the most important trends in project management through our international survey, Pulse of the Profession®.

The most recent Pulse of the Profession® witnesses a bright change in the way industries and businesses are controlling programs and projects.
