The development and implementation of an organization’s product or service can be a high-stake endeavor. Plus, today’s level of disruption and pace of change is accelerating rapidly within companies, putting pressure on their ability to execute strategic initiatives.
To address these dynamics, Enterprise Portfolio and Program Management (EPPM) has evolved from a supporting function within companies to a core business capability focused on end-to-end strategy execution and value realization.
EPPM functions, including project portfolio management, program management and project management, play a critical role in aligning, prioritizing, managing, and governing change efforts across the organization.
Enterprise Portfolio and Program Management enable seamless integration, product innovation, and better risk management and decision-making when overcoming difficult challenges. Our intent is to help our clients succeed — no hidden agendas.
Being agile and turning strategy into business value, products and services have become a real challenge. Companies can have the best business strategies in the world, but if they can’t deliver on them, they’re worthless.
Modern Enterprise Portfolio and Program Management should build development strategies and successfully deliver sustainable results.
There’s a long list of reasons why companies struggle with EPPM results – here are some:
Projects might not align with rapidly changing business skills and strategies
Lack of 360-degree view of project portfolio across business units
No governance to align priorities and rank initiatives and projects
PMOs are often bureaucratic and slow things down versus enabling change
Lack of clarity on project value and how to measure value creation
Not having the right job or people involved upfront to create good plans and solutions
No standards in how work is organized and planned
Lack of accurate, real-time, and automated reporting
