Abstract: In highly dynamic, service-oriented environments like academic libraries, much staff time is spent on initiatives to implement new products and services to meet users evolving needs. Yet even in an environment where a sound project management process is applied, if we are not properly planning, managing, and controlling the organizations work in the aggregate, we will have difficulty achieving our strategic goals. Project portfolio management provides a way to ensure that this project work supports the organizations strategic vision, the active projects represent the highest priorities of the organization, and there are enough resources to accomplish all the project work at hand.
