Portfolio Management - Acts as the entry point for new IT projects.  Projects are sized, scored, ranked and prioritized to make the best use of IT’s resources while maximizing technology benefits to customers. Provides analysis of the relationships, resourcing, and impacts of projects within the portfolio to best achieve strategic objectives.

Project Management - Ensures individual IT projects are correctly managed through every project phase.  Qualified and credentialed project managers (PMs) work to deliver technology solutions that meet customer requirements and expectations. PMs apply knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques in standardized processes to facilitate the project lifecycle and successful project outcomes.
