One Version of the Truth

I’m Bernard Carroll, co-founder of Enverian.

I have spent over 20 years managing and delivering projects and portfolios in the IT, Pharma, Medical Devices and Utilities sectors.

During that time I have learned (the hard way!) that Portfolio Project Management (PPM) isn’t easy to deliver consistently, systematically and assuredly!

In this series of 5 blogs I’m going to highlight a number of PPM challenges, individually selected to illustrate an aspect of PPM that most people find challenging and then to give my view (backed up with a video) to show rather than tell how the challenge can be addressed.

The 5 blogs are…

1. The Dreaded Ping

2. Consolidate the Portfolio

3. One Version of the Truth

4. I’m a Project Manager…get me outta here!

5. PPM doesn’t come cheap! Right?

In the previous blog I looked at Consolidate the Portfolio. Here follows Blog #3.


3. One Version of the Truth

As a project manager, my credibility and reputation as a competent and professional practitioner was dependent on my ability to establish a single version of the truth: be it finance, resourcing, risk management or any other area of concern to the project.

At the project level it is complex: at the portfolio level it can be almost impossible.

This is why we created Enverian PPM (Portfolio Project Management).

In just 3 minutes, I can show you how Enverian PPM incorporates original project business case, linked to back-end corporate finance systems to track, manage and harmonise project finances from project inception to close out.
