PSGS 024: Why I Started the PPM Academy Podcast

PodcastCover

Welcome to the PPM Academy podcast for Project, Program & Portfolio Managers where we will Interview Industry Experts and discuss current and future trends in the world of Project, Program and Portfolio Management and how what we do impacts our company’s execution culture.

I’m Gerald Leonard.

Today, I plan to share with you why I started the PPM Academy Podcast.

  • If you are the kind of person that loves to learn new insights and real world examples and hate boring management presentations or podcasts that are purely academic and void of real life examples, then this podcast is for you.
  • So, why start another Project Portfolio Management Podcast? PPM is simply the ability for an organization or individual to make the best data-driven decision in the selection of activities and tasks that are aligned to their goals while making the most of their limited resources.
    • I love making the right decision.
    • I love prioritizing chaos and helping my family, friends and clients become more, do more, have more and live more as they achieve their goals and objectives.
    • I want to make the concepts of PPM plain and practical.
