PM430 Unit 2 IP
The project management office (PMO) director has decided to make you a program manager. You will now manage 2 related projects. The first project is the implementation of the project portfolio management (PPM) software tool that you discussed in Week 1. The second project, which relates to the first, is the implementation of strategic planning software. In addition, prepare a report for the PMO director that describes the benefits of program management in an integration project as it relates to project management and a standardized implementation.
Prepare a report for the PMO director that describes the specific benefits and issues for the management of the 2 related projects in the program. The report will be in Word and formatted using APA style. The report should contain the following:
Title page with the topic title, your name, the course, and the date
Introduction with the purpose of the report
Content pages with the benefits of program management for your 2 projects (the PPM software implementation and the strategic planning software implementation)
Content pages describing the benefits of program management, directed to the PMO manager
Reference list with sources in APA format
Basic APA formatting includes 1-inch margins, double-spacing throughout the paper, page numbers in the upper right-hand corner, paragraphs indented 5–7 spaces, and first-level headings centered and in bold font.
