Managing the successful execution of important business change programs has become even more critical for executives looking to achieve a step change in performance. The success of strategic initiatives, whether at the organizational level or within business units or functions, can dramatically impact the underlying value of an enterprise, its cash flows, relationships with its customers and the morale of its people.
At KeyedIn Projects we understand the importance of transformation, business acquisitions and large change programs; we also know how these programs can generate significant levels of business risk if not executed on time and on budget. In some cases a poorly managed transformation can even lead to business failure. More commonly the inability to deliver the benefits expected or promised will result in business stagnation and negatively impact the business’ performance relative to its competitors.
Ensure Leadership Buy-In
Many of the risks inherent in business change are to be found in poor execution and oversight, rather than management and their advisers having a bad strategy. From planning to execution KeyedIn Projects ensures you have uniformity and rigor in how initiatives and projects are proposed, budgets are requested and assigned, and the impact supported and justified. With KeyedIn Projects Senior Management has complete visibility into project execution including milestones, issues and benefits realization meaning there are no unnecessary surprises.
Improve Investment Decision Making
Too often senior executives and stakeholders become frustrated that they are unable to manage the level of risk associated with the execution of strategically important change programs. The ever widening execution gap that separates strategic decision making from project related activities means that leadership can quickly lose sight of progress, and issues that can accumulate almost daily go unresolved. KeyedIn Projects can help bridge that gap by ensuring all investment decisions follow a standardized process and that full transparency and visibility is provided at every stage.
Ensure your Project Portfolio is Aligned with Corporate Strategies
In many organizations individual projects and initiatives are not synchronized with activities elsewhere, meaning dependencies are overlooked or ignored and there is little alignment between projects and corporate objectives – sometimes leading to adverse impacts to customers and employees. With KeyedIn Projects you can ensure your forecasting and planning activities are fully synchronized with project execution and management, meaning project decisions are based strictly on business value, as well as the status of the existing project portfolio, your overall capability to deliver and your budget and financial constraints.
