Control and Improve Your Business
Greater technological complexity. Fewer resources. Tighter deadlines. Intense pressure to deliver results. It’s a “do more with less” world.
It is no wonder that many projects – especially IT projects – take longer and cost more than planned. Beyond greater cost, many projects and strategic investments fail to produce the expected value. This is where project portfolio management is key.
Project management best practices help, but many projects still “step on each other.” To realize maximum ROI from key enterprise projects and change initiatives, a full and robust project, program and portfolio management capability is necessary.
Project Portfolio Management: A Value-Driven Approach Drives ROI
Infinitive’s Project, Program and Portfolio Management (PPM) solutions deliver value to the bottom line by increasing the return for every project dollar invested and driving faster results.
Infinitive takes a unique, value-driven approach to implementing active, hands-on, PPM capabilities. Our focus is on delivering more projects, more efficiently—not simply gathering information.
We partner with program management offices (PMOs) and IT leaders to systematically analyze and validate decisions. This eliminates barriers to success and ensures PPM strategies and efforts are linked to core business objectives.
Infinitive’s experienced PPM professionals leverage best practices in critical areas, including project management and governance, as well as integrated toolsets and organizational design, to set up projects for success.
Then, we operationalize proven approaches for planning (such as business case development, high-level resource planning and cost estimating) and execution (such as issues and risk reporting/management, status and executive reporting).
The outcomes include faster speed to market, improved financial performance, superior delivery quality and higher levels of compliance.
