"I'll bet some of our management has no idea what I'm doing. How can they know what value I'm adding to the organization and recognize my efforts if they don't know why I'm here?" A related statement is, "I like what I'm working on, but it's not clear to me that it adds any real value to my department or the company. I wish that I understood where my work fits in and what its importance is."
Comments. The first statement is almost always more a matter of perception than reality. Yet the visibility that PPM brings to the project selection process, the requirement of PPM governing board members to understand proposed initiatives, and the formalization of organizational support for planned work all reduce the perception that management is out of touch. The second statement is addressed through communication of the rationales underlying the selection of projects.
