Digital PPM: Navigating continuous change to deliver business outcomes

Rapid change and constant shifts are now a reality for every organization, and PPM leaders must be agile and adaptive in order to succeed. At Gartner Program & Portfolio Management Summit 2020, June 23 – 25, in Orlando, FL, you learn why an outcome-focused mindset, evolved skills and a commitment to continuous learning is now an essential part of PPM — and how new levels of engagement across the enterprise yield the best business outcomes.

At the conference, you'll learn how to:

  • Apply adaptive and new approaches with diverse teams of multidisciplinary business and technology stakeholders
  • Address the needs of sponsors, business owners and other stakeholders to validate PPM’s ability to deliver successful outcomes
  • Transform the organization to support continuous change, deliver rapid results and enable improved portfolio decision making
  • Rethink the roles PPM leaders, strategy realization offices (SROs) and enterprise PMOs (EPMOs) to help align business priorities and adapt to volatile competitive environments


PPM leaders must reinvent themselves to keep pace with digital disruption. They need to move away from delivering consistency and control, to delivering rapid innovation and continuous value.

Speed and Agility

PPM leaders must embrace the new normal and focus their efforts on what matters most. They must evolve to sustain change at a pace that can keep up with digital disruption.

Product Mindset 

PPM leaders needs to adopt a “product mindset” that will either realize their strategy or maintain their competitive position in their industry.
