Project Portfolio Management

Project management practices influence more than individual projects—they affect the overall health of a company’s project portfolio and the ability to advance its overall strategy.

Integrated Project Management Company, Inc. (IPM) can help develop and improve your project management and project portfolio management (PPM) framework, allowing you to prioritize and execute strategic projects that will deliver tangible, sustainable benefits.


Our approach to PPM is to understand your culture and right-size practices to fit your organizational needs, aligning our recommended structure, tools, and processes with your goals and resources.

IPM can lead your organization in establishing or enhancing an effective Project Management Office (PMO) and build your project, program, and portfolio management capabilities. If time is of the essence, our Collaborative PMO (cPMO) will rapidly install a world-class team to begin adding value on Day One.
