Aligning IT and Business with Demand Management

Aligning IT and Business with Demand Management

Demand Management (DM) is a component of a full-featured Project Portfolio Management (PPM) practice. Demand comes from many sources and all phases of the project lifecycle. Capacity management must consider all of these.

With PPM, you extend the management of projects to the full lifecycle, spanning from idea to realization of benefits. This is accomplished by bringing structure to project selection and resource allocation.

The business case defines all aspects of the project. It demonstrates how it supports strategic and tactical initiatives. It calculates expected ROI. It modifies ROI based of risks. It expresses the "value" of the project. It outlines impacts on resources. Topics: Project Management Solutions Resource Planning and Scheduling IT Portfolio Management
