Project Portfolio Management

Getting the “real” big picture view of project activity.

Project Portfolio Management Assessment

GT Solu­tions assess­es your cur­rent project port­fo­lio man­age­ment process­es and, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with you, iden­ti­fies the appro­pri­ate lev­el of PPM dis­ci­pline for your orga­ni­za­tion. We then apply our best-in-class Project Port­fo­lio Man­age­ment Matu­ri­ty Mod­el to deter­mine your cur­rent PPM capa­bil­i­ty and iden­ti­fy process gaps between your organization’s cur­rent state and desired future state. We pro­vide the roadmap for improve­ments and work with you to devel­op the imple­men­ta­tion plan.

Portfolio Process Improvement

Results from the assess­ment are used to define an approach to improve your orga­ni­za­tion’s ongo­ing port­fo­lio man­age­ment prac­tices. GT Solu­tions part­ners with you on the devel­op­ment and deliv­ery of the rec­om­mend­ed approach and improve­ment plan, includ­ing a cost/benefit analy­sis for tak­ing the next steps in opti­miz­ing your PPM prac­tices that yields bet­ter align­ment with your busi­ness objec­tives.

We help you inte­grate your PM and PPM process­es to enable you to select the best project port­fo­lio aligned to your strate­gic plan. Fore­cast­ing and opti­miz­ing the use of avail­able resources is an inte­gral part of PPM. Mon­i­tor­ing project and port­fo­lio per­for­mance ensures invest­ment deci­sions remain the best choic­es in your chang­ing world. Port­fo­lios are con­tin­u­al­ly eval­u­at­ed. Pri­or­i­ti­za­tion is an iter­a­tive process and your port­fo­lio must be repri­or­i­tized as busi­ness con­di­tions, resources, and bud­gets change.

Portfolio Reporting & Analysis

With­out a well-defined infor­ma­tion gath­er­ing and analy­sis struc­ture for project port­fo­lio report­ing, the exe­cu­tion of PPM will pro­duce dis­ap­point­ing results. GT Solu­tions will work with you to cus­tomize and imple­ment our five-lev­el port­fo­lio report­ing mod­el. We estab­lish val­ue and per­for­mance mea­sures at the project, pro­gram, and port­fo­lio lev­els, and then cre­ate analy­sis mech­a­nisms to pro­vide out­come vis­i­bil­i­ty at the depart­ment and cor­po­rate lev­els. Analy­sis includes pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, resource man­age­ment, cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion, finan­cial eval­u­a­tions, macro-cat­e­go­riza­tion com­par­isons, ROI, and more; all cus­tomized to assist you in man­ag­ing the demands of your unique busi­ness. Plan your suc­cess, mea­sure it, and man­age it.
