Can you develop a PPM system into a work collaboration platform for everyone?

Aaron Scott heads the Corporate Programme Management Office for NHS Solent Trust. Having introduced a new PPM approach and cloud-based system the challenge now is how to engage the wider organisation.

Cloud PPM systems are great at managing key projects and for stakeholder engagement but they’re not universally popular with project teams and the wider delivery community. They often see these systems as adding to their workload and providing benefits to the PMO rather than their teams. As a result, they may continue to use file sharing and collaboration tools, so information remains in multiple locations and systems. Working with the Verto team we’ve created a work collaboration platform that provides the features which are relevant to each person and role. It means we can manage everything from simple day to day tasks and workspaces through to major initiatives all in one place.
