Portfolio Project Management helps in creating a pro-active dynamic organisation
Doing the right initiative at the right time is easy to say but sometimes difficult to implement. Through the use of portfolio management we can help you to prioritise and deliver the right projects in the context of the organisations strategic objectives and available resources.

Everything we do tends to follow a process either explicitly or implicitly. I can help your organisation or individuals to identify those processes that add value and improve on them where necessary. We will also identify those processes that do not add value and phase them out from the daily routines. Companies that are successful today and that will continue to be successful and prosper in the future will be those that have processes in place that can repeatedly integrate new people and technology into their existing structure while continuously improving products and services.
The seven core processes described on this site is an example of how we may help your organisation with implementing project management.
Most people will understand the need to manage and remove constraints, the trick is to focus on those issues from which you will gain the greatest leverage in achieving more goal units.
I can help you by using an easy to understand combination of methods and practices to define and visualise the goal, current situation and what needs to be done to move forward.
In addition I facilitate discussions where people who have very strong and opposing views but a common objective so they can arrive at a common understanding without the need to compromise. People are often very surprised how close they are to each other’s thinking.
Projects and programmes are designed to deliver change; we ensure that the right change is delivered.
Working with our clients and understanding how the organisation currently functions, then identifying and defining the new capabilities the organisation requires to move forward. We are able to develop a road-map that will enable your organisation to transform and fulfil the planned goal.
Defining the new capabilities
Where there is change there is an element of risk, comprising of opportunities and threats that will impact on activity objectives. Taking and managing risk is the very essence of business survival and growth. Risk management is an integral part of the project management service we offer. This enables us to minimise the threats and maximise the opportunities to objectives that inevitably come up with programmes and projects.
Don Lowe AB can help you improve the internal control and support better decision-making through a good understanding of individual risks and the overall risk exposure.
We can also help to structure your organisations risk management approach and then show you how to embed it throughout your organisation. From the strategic level through programmes, projects and to business as usual operations.
