User adoption is a challenge that has long plagued project management office (PMO) leaders and portfolio managers. While many project portfolio management (PPM) tools can address common issues, they are only as good as the data they hold. Simply stated, if no one uses it, it’s useless. But the benefits of PPM far outweigh the administrative effort to maintain them, so why is it so hard to realize value from a solution? There are many challenges that come with procuring and implementing a PPM solution, but in order to successfully adopt a solution, it starts before the evaluation process even begins.
