Project & Portfolio Management
We can support you in the following areas:
Losing project control
Unclear scope, overspending, schedule overruns, stakeholder frustration, and delivery delays affect the project.
There is a need to improve your own processes before your customer takes the initiative to audit your services.
Complex projects or programs
A formidable challenge lies ahead that cannot be met with current internal capabilities and capacities.
Outsourcing gone bad
A large or complex outsourcing initiative has gotten out of hand. To get back on track, it needs an external perspective and outside help.

Our PPM Service Packages:
// Survey-based PPM relevant data point collection
Every organization is different.
Not just from a cultural nature perspective, but also business model and, current macro and meso economic situation (to name a few).
All of these aspects colour the strategic direction, and short and mid-term focus, and therefore have a direct effect on how the organization is steered and operationally managed.
That is why we start with a targeted survey, extracting as many relevant data points out of your organization as possible, that combined give us a picture of where the biggest potential gains could be, concerning your end2end Project & Portfolio Management Chain.
// Validation Meeting (of the data points)
Awareness and recognition of the collected data can sometimes be confronting or eye-opening. Better to have that transparency upfront – so we start crunching the numbers and base our findings on a jointly understood basis.
// DI in-house Analysis
The collected data points will show us the overarching tendencies and preferences of the organization – which enables us to recommend prioritization of certain PPM processes and capabilities, over others.
For example: Do you work with interdepartmental cross-charging/chargebacks of project deliverables and manpower? Do you work with hard yearly departmental budget caps, or are funds released on the basis of ROI? Do you have cross-functional teams collaborating across locations and time zones?
Results report with clearly identified improvement potentials, tailored to your situation.
