This capability supports defining the organization’s strategic missions and initiatives.
This capability provides the mechanism to define/manage the organization’s strategic initiatives and set financial time-phased budgets or targets against which planned and in-flight investments can be analyzed.
We can define our organizational strategy in the form of a strategic plan and we can describe and define the elements of this strategic plan and assign ownership.
We can define, describe and categorize strategic initiatives based on our organizational data model and attributes.
We can define budgets and targets for the elements of the strategic plan that represent the investment “pot” of money for the portfolio and the benefits/ revenue targets that the portfolio must generate.
We can support investment planning by providing the context of strategic financial targets against which demand can be analyzed and an assessment made on the ability to take on new investments.

|Create/Manage Financial Target and Budgets||
Build out the elements of the financial plans so that these budgets can be used to fund programs. The purpose of this step is to define an organization-wide strategic investment budget that will eventually be divided out between the relevant initiatives and programs, acting as the baseline for comparison against the actual cost of delivery.
Organization-wide investment budgets can be defined in the financial plan at any level of the investment/strategy structure. The budget can be assigned to different business units or strategic programs, based on the investment/strategy structure.
Planview Enterprise One – PRM supports both the top-down and bottom-up strategic budget planning. For top-down planning, budgets can be assigned to a level of the strategy structure on the Financial Planning Detail screen, then spread down to lower levels. For bottom-up planning, budgets are captured at the lower levels and can be summarized or rolled up to the higher levels.
