You are now ready to determine the project life cycle for your project portfolio management (PPM) software tool implementation. Using your knowledge of the project management life cycle, prepare a PowerPoint presentation for your project manager colleagues and your manager. The presentation will describe the steps for creating a successful project plan, covering the project life cycle for the PPM software tool implementation and the major activities within each life cycle element.
The PowerPoint presentation should contain 10–14 slides, including a title slide and at least 1 reference slide.
