PPM (PROJECT & PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT) IS A METHODOLOGY WHICH IS BEING IMPLEMENTED IN THE MOST PART OF ORGANIZATIONS AND FOR ITS IMPLEMENTATION AND DEVELOPMENT IT REQUIRES PROFESSIONALS WHO KNOW IT WELL. PPM PROFESSIONAL CAREER COVERS FROM PORTFOLIO, PROGRAMS AND PROJECT MANAGERS TO PROJECT TEAM MEMBERS. IT IS A CROSS-SECTORIAL DISCIPLINE, APPLICABLE TO EACH SECTOR OF THE ECONOMY AND COMPUTING IS ONE OF THEM.
Computing, in its origin, was applied to process automation which led to a reduction of the costs. Later on, it was used to improve data generation for decision making from the system theory. It was intended to improve knowledge about the reality of the organizations and its environment from computing. The result is clear, computing has become a natural ally of organizations sustainability and its importance is still growing.
But, what about professionals developing and applying these tools? Computer scientists require a high level of specialized knowledge and also to enjoy their own time and developments. Consequently, they feel valued and appreciated within their respective contexts. This circumstance, in environments of growing uncertainty, predisposes them to not to leave their comfort zone. To stay in this zone is to waste opportunities that other professionals do not have.
Those computer scientists who apart from the development of applications try to know their contexts and functionalities within organizations dynamics, they are entering PPM (Project & Portfolio Management). These abilities, developed by computer scientists, add a value to the companies that hardly other professionals could add. It is not about providing clients with solutions, it is about providing the best solutions, the most efficient solutions to satisfy clients’ expectations within their operative contexts. This approach adds value and positions computer scientists in a double professional career, as technicians and project managers. With this approach, a new world of opportunities, which will change life of those who decide to focus their technical projects from the Project Management perspective and to conceive it as a professional career, is being opened.
