Portfolio Management

The secret to a well-run business, especially during periods of significant change, is a crystal clear view of your project portfolio, their independencies, budget and time status.

Our Portfolio Management Solution

It’s a cliché but it’s true: change is constant in business. For companies enjoying rapid growth, or experiencing digital transformation, there are often too many new projects to deliver: all wanted at the same time, with the same set of limited resources – people, time and money. Where to start?

Smart people have lots of ideas, and it’s very easy to say yes until you realise that all your projects are potentially suffering. Are you experiencing this kind of ‘project gridlock’?

The portfolio management experts at Digital Works Group team are experts at helping companies design, set-up and operate an effective Project Management Office. They can help you to get your project portfolio under control – to ensure that you’re working on what will bring the most benefits. Helping you control investment and ensure your projects remain on track. Delivering their commercial benefit at pace. So you can avoid escalating delays and budgets.

We do this by working hand-in-hand with our clients every step of the way, delivered via a proven systematic framework.

Our Proven Portfolio Management Methodology Framework

1. Objectives

Before even looking at the project list we need to identify whether the business has got clear objectives – strategic, measurable, aligned and understood.

2. Process

The prioritisation criteria and process will be fully tailored to the business need, culture and maturity level – whether very simple and people-based or a more analytical scorecard-based approach – whatever is right for the client.

3. Assess

This is the interesting part – applying the agreed criteria to the current project roadmap, and acting on the results. This often means that some projects get re-prioritised or even stopped – in order to focus on the right ones.

4. Embed

The key to success is that this isn’t a one-off exercise and that the Portfolio Management process becomes an integral part of ongoing decision-making. We will roll out and train in the agreed new practices, and hand them over to the client so they can stay on top of their project roadmap.
