Best Practices for Successful Project Portfolio Management with ServiceNow

Curious about the best practices for successful Project Portfolio Management with ServiceNow?

At Covestic, we’ve had the privilege to help many great companies take advantage of their investment in ServiceNow. An area of particular importance—ServiceNow Project Portfolio Management (PPM), which aligns project investments and consolidates resource and project data into a single system — can be challenging without the right strategy in place. That’s why we work closely with customers to make sure they can manage PPM successfully. We have a proven best practices approach that is repeatable and delivers results.

Our PPM approach has 3 phases to ensure success:

  • Phase 1: We collect ideas from the organization to create a portfolio of projects with enough information to support executive or high-level status reporting.
  • Phase 2: We introduce Program Management and Agile Development as another means of classifying and organizing projects, building and tracking detailed project schedules, and understanding how to begin individual project status reporting.
  • Phase 3: We close the loop on project budgets, cost tracking, resource planning, and allocation across project and non-project work and time tracking.
