Incorporating Spirituality into your Project Portfolio Management Team

By Keller Graduate School of Management

The concept of spirituality has moved into organizations at warp speed with the increasing, yet valued diversity of the workplace. However, through research we have concluded that the local world of Project Portfolio Management is spiritually detached, both academically and in real world routines. Our goal today is to increase awareness of the potential benefits concerning spirituality in PPM: Highlighting the relation between the two subjects, analyzing the outcome of a lack there of, in addition to an assessment of the role of the Project Portfolio Manager. To be more specific, we will answer the following questions: (1) How does spirituality relate to PPM? (2) Does moral deficit add to the high incompletion rate of projects? (3) What leadership approach or style effectively promotes spirituality in PPM? Again, due to literal failure to link spirituality to PPM, we overcame the challenge by merging literature on PPM, general business, and psychology, as well as heightened spiritual commentaries by professionals. Most importantly, we are inducing a movement from power and conformity to transformation, collaboration, and inspiration. Our work is the missing link between spirituality as a highly valued and essential part of an organization, to the cold world of PPM.
