History of Innovation
Recognized thought and market leader in portfolio management
Planview CEO Patrick Durbin is no stranger to innovation. With more than 30 years of experience in system design, Pat created multiple award-winning project management and resource management systems and became recognized as a visionary in the field of enterprise software. He fostered a culture of innovation throughout Planview, which he launched in 1989. The results have been a new vision for enterprise project management, emphasizing flexible resource allocation over rigid timeline adherence. This revolutionary approach is now the industry standard and has been emulated by organizations across the globe.
Planview's first software offering was not only a success, but it effectively established the now thriving portfolio management category. Since then, Planview has pioneered a number of industry firsts, including the first web-based project management solution and the first codified IT management best practices – Planview PRISMS®. Today, with nearly two decades of breaking new ground in portfolio management, the spirit of innovation continues to flourish at Planview.
