Level of Participation

PPM not only has a wide breadth across the organization, requiring a wide range of participation, it also extends deeply into the hierarchy. At the upper end, the leadership and direction must come from the very highest levels of the enterprise: the chief executive officer (CEO), chief operating officer (COO), and chief financial officer (CFO). In an organization where information technology (IT) is a primary business, we can expect the chief information officer (CIO)

to play a significant role. Certainly the vice president of projects or chief projects officer is a key player.

Depending on the type of business, there might be participation by the director of manufacturing, the chief chemist, the chief engineer, or the director of construction. In the pharmaceutical industry, the director of regulatory affairs should be involved. The key factor here is to identify the parts of the organization that have major stakeholder responsibility and make sure that their leaders are part of the PPM leadership.
