The City of Cape Town is faced with an environment that is becoming more complex and interdependent because of the increase in projects. Discussions and workshops across the organisation previously identiﬁed a broad requirement in relation to project portfolio management (PPM) processes and practices to improve the planning, selection and execution of capital projects thus improving capital expenditure.
Project portfolio management enables the alignment of projects with organisational strategy, thus enabling the effective allocation of resources to projects and thereby improving delivery. Project portfolio management (PPM) is an important discipline which can deliver positive impact to an organisation, providing senior management with reliable information to support decision-making processes and enabling operational transparency of projects.
The PPM project is an innovative ﬁrst in local government in South Africa. Using the SAP PPM function, it entails a holistic multi-disciplinary approach to the design, implementation and support of capital projects from a people, process and technology perspective.
