The Strategic Alliance of Human Resource Management and Project Portfolio Management.

Integrating Human Resources (HR) solutions with Project Portfolio Management (PPM) solutions is an emerging trend that creates a decisive competitive advantage. The combination of HR and PPM closely aligns the management of people and projects to maintain stable corporate growth.

This collaboration should be tailored to meet critical business trends, offering solutions that streamline workflows, enhance decision-making, and optimize resource management. SenseHR and Exepron PPM Solution provide integrated risk management, recognizing potential risks in staffing and project execution and allowing for preemptive action.

Here are six key trends that such integration effectively addresses.


  1. 1. Enhanced Resource Management

Trend Explanation:

Integrating HR and PPM solutions helps organizations allocate and maintain more accurate and efficient resourcing. This integration allows managers to review team members’ availability, understand their skills, experience, and competencies in-depth, and assign them to projects accordingly, even ranking employee development and leadership capability.


  • Optimized Staffing: Immediate visibility into personnel availability and their skill sets helps place the right people on suitable projects.
  • Reduced Overheads: Streamlining resource allocation reduces the likelihood of overstaffing or understaffing, which can lead to cost overruns or delays.

  1. Improved Workforce Planning

Trend Explanation:

Workforce planning becomes more strategic when HR data concerning career progression, succession planning, and skills inventory are integrated with project needs and timelines.


  • Proactive Skill Development: Aligning project requirements with individual career paths can highlight future training needs, helping maintain a competitive edge.
  • Future-proofing Operations: Advanced planning for future projects with visibility into employee potential and project pipelines ensures smoother project initiations and transitions.

  1. Streamlined Communication

Trend Explanation:

Communication across departments, especially between HR and project teams, improves as both domains are accessible through a unified platform. This fosters better collaboration and information sharing.


  • Integrated Application Platforms: Reduces the need to switch between different software to access HR and PM information, saving time and reducing errors.
  • Enhanced Collaboration: Teams can work more cohesively with all project and HR-related communications centralized in one place.

  1. Data-Driven Decision Making

Trend Explanation:

The integration facilitates data aggregation and analysis from HR and PM domains, providing comprehensive insights that drive smarter business decisions.

  • Predictive Analytics: This helps forecast project outcomes based on HR trends, such as peak hiring times or skill shortages.

Proactive Skill Development: Identifies skill gaps and developmental opportunities, ensuring employees are well-prepared to meet future project demands.

  1. Regulatory Compliance and Risk Management

Trend Explanation:

With integrated solutions, managing compliance with labor laws and project specifications becomes easier, as all necessary data is available and actionable from a single system.


  • Unified Compliance Tracking: Simplifies the process of ensuring both HR regulations and project standards are met.
  • Risk Mitigation: Proactively addresses potential risks in project staffing and legal HR issues.

  1. Real-Time Performance Feedback

Trend Explanation:

The integration allows real-time employee performance tracking directly linked to project outcomes, facilitating immediate feedback and adjustments.
