Think of PPM, Project Portfolio Management, as your project management ninja

Before diving intro the story, start reading from the beginning.

Once upon a time…

In the bustling metropolis of Ideaville, chaos reigned supreme.

Projects sprouted like weeds – some promising, some…not so much. Everyone had a ”brilliant” idea, but resources were stretched thin, and deadlines whizzed by like angry hornets.

Clara, the overworked head of Project Management, felt like a one-woman circus.

She juggled flaming hoops (urgent requests), cycled on tightropes (conflicting budgets), and tamed lions (unruly stakeholders). Something had to change.

Then, she heard whispers of a legendary project management ninja – PPM, they called it. Intrigued, she sought out this elusive master.

The ninja’s dojo was a haven of tranquility amidst the storm.

”First,” the ninja explained, ”we align your blades with your true target.”

With the ninja’s guidance, Clara ruthlessly prioritized projects. Those that didn’t support Ideaville’s big goals were honorably retired, freeing up precious resources.

Next, the ninja unveiled a crystal ball – a PPM dashboard.

”See beneath the surface,” the ninja instructed.

Clara peered in. It revealed projects teetering on the edge of disaster, hidden budget leaks, and a team member juggling far too many tasks.

Armed with this foresight, Clara deftly sidestepped trouble before it erupted.

”True power lies in unity,” the ninja said, unrolling a giant scroll. It became a centralized hub of project knowledge. Once-siloed teams now worked together.

The dreaded question, ”Wait, you were doing what?!” faded into a distant memory.

As Clara trained, she noticed a newfound agility within Ideaville’s projects.

The ninja taught her to anticipate risks, like shifting deadlines or sudden resource shortages.

Soon, projects flowed and bent instead of breaking. No longer were unexpected curveballs met with panic, but with a calm strategic pivot.

Word of Clara’s transformation spread. Ideaville hummed with efficiency.

The best ideas blossomed into successful projects, propelling the city forward.

And Clara?

She wasn’t a weary circus performer anymore.

She was a strategic ninja, empowered by PPM, and no project chaos could faze her.
