PM3 key features

PM3's Outcome-Driven view of all your initiatives maximises the value of all your programme and project investments. This means you always have:

  • The right portfolio of initiatives
  • Which have been planned right so you know you can deliver them
  • Which are governed right to make sure they all stay on track
  • Leading to achieving the right outcomes for your business

Right portfolio

PM3 adds value by helping you identify the Right Portfolio - the optimal mix of projects and programmes that'll deliver the right outcomes for your business.

PM3's Business Priority Matrix shows the portfolio of proposed business projects that have been assessed according to their relative value, risk and payback period. Projects towards the top right of the matrix are Gold priority. They're valuable and low risk. These are the projects that you're most likely to invest in.

Once the optimal portfolio's agreed you can plan the projects and programmes, then track and govern their progress.

Right planning

PM3 adds value by helping you do the Right Planning. Top-down, planning allows key stakeholders to agree important business milestones before planning and scheduling tasks.

PM3 provides powerful resource and financial capacity planning tools so you can avoid any bottlenecks or shortfalls. It also allows you to explore alternative 'what if' scenarios, like increasing headcount or delaying projects, to help you find the optimum mix for delivery.

Of course, PM3 also supports traditional bottom-up task planning, scheduling and Gantt charts, and has a two-way interface with Microsoft Project.


Right governance

When you have decided the right mix of projects and programmes, you need to make sure that these are delivered successfully.

PM3 helps you by providing the right governance. PM3 maintains a set of configurable stage gates that check that the project or programme is on track and the business justification is still valid.

There are a range of configurable delivery status indicators that can be used to objectively measure the project or programme.

In addition, PM3 has a range of governance reports including highlight reports that can be viewed or printed or emailed.

Right outcomes

PM3 adds value by helping you achieve the Right Outcomes for your business. Firstly, it allows you to track monthly, the extent to which your planned benefits have been realized.

PM3 supports effective communications by allowing the drumbeat reports to be scheduled for automatic delivery with a unique facility to escalate anything critical to senior management (e.g. risks, issues, milestones) so they stay focused on the big picture.

And finally it allows you to measure and demonstrate the success of completed projects.


"We found pm3time and PM3 very easy to configure and implement. We especially like the portfolio capability where a project can be added into many portfolios. This enables us to report on any combination of projects in seconds."
