Recently, there has been an emphasis on managing projects strategically within the organization using project portfolio management (PPM). However, the extent of adoption of this innovation and the enabling factors are not well understood in academics and practice. This research-inprogress investigates a model of PPM adoption using data being collected from project managers. The model identifies a total of nine variables capturing various environmental, PPM, and organizational factors that could potentially impact the adoption decision of PPM. The survey is hosted on the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) website in order to collect data from PMI members worldwide. The data will be analyzed using logistic regression to identify the factors that have a significant impact on PPM adoption. This research is part of a larger multi-method research of PPM adoption and infusion and the results of this research will help practitioners and researchers better understand factors that impact PPM adoption decisions.
