Harnessing potential from your Programme, Project, Portfolio and Change Management strategy requires delivery processes that are fit for purpose, end-to-end. There is no shortcut to achieving that goal.
Gaining improvements with PPM Consulting
It requires careful evaluation of each component in the delivery cycle to identify weaknesses and gaps and a plan for resolving them. It assumes a commitment to excellent portfolio management and programme delivery at Board level, ensuring alignment with strategic objectives.
A logical starting point is to assess the organisation and the people who will drive the PPM strategy and the processes that deliver projects and programmes.
Are they assigned the right roles, as sponsors, project managers, business change managers, and business unit heads? Does the organisation enable all relevant stakeholders to participate with the right level of responsibilities and duties when required?

Each part of the programme, project and portfolio frameworks and definitions need to be checked rigorously. At CPS, we go further to examine every step. Is the portfolio cycle effectively defined, for example, from mandate to blueprint, business case, roadmap and project dossier?
Project and programme integration is key to delivery. Dependency management needs careful evaluation, and control cycles should be clearly harmonised.
Governance must be tested by questioning how project and programme decisions will be made, by whom, when, and how issues will be escalated. Controls and documentation also need review, as well as support arrangements for decisions, delivery, assurance and compliance.
