Organizational project management is the systematic management of projects, programs, and portfolios in alignment with the achievement of strategic goals. The concept of organizational project management is based on the idea that there is a correlation between an organization's capabilities in project management, program management, and portfolio management, and the organization's effectiveness in implementing strategy.
As businesses change at a faster rate, it is becoming increasingly important to execute on projects. Additionally, due to the broad nature of much of the change, projects are affecting larger parts of the organization. Therefore, just as the need to perform projects is increasing, the complexity in executing them is also increasing. Organizational project management draws from the broad base of project management and organizational design applications to understand the organizational processes that affect the ability to manage the delivery of projects.
