Align Planning, Strategy and Delivery
What can your PMO expect from KeyedIn?
Value-Driven PPM Software for Dynamic Project Portfolio Management Leaders
While project portfolio management (PPM) software may have begun as an efficient way to organize the completion of tasks, today the project/portfolio management office (PMO) requires something more. By moving beyond tasks and timelines alone, the modern PMO demands value-driven PPM software for dynamic PPM leaders, who now sit at the forefront of business transformation and strategy realization. KeyedIn enables this value-driven approach to PPM by providing solutions that encompass the entire project portfolio lifecycle: from project intake, portfolio analysis and capacity planning to resource assignments, task management and customized reporting.
Respond to Market Conditions by Streamlining Initiatives for Higher Strategic Value
The most significant obstacle to a PMO’s success is not doing too little, but rather doing too much. When every initiative is important and urgent, none of them are. This lack of portfolio prioritization becomes even more challenging as the rate of change in business increases exponentially. The right PPM Tool can break through these barriers to success by enabling the PMO to respond to market conditions by streamlining initiatives for higher strategic value. With KeyedIn, the processes for selecting and executing the most valuable projects is simplified, allowing the PMO to quickly take advantage of opportunities – or respond to threats – in a changing market.
Realign Shifting Priorities with Adaptive Portfolio Prioritization and Funding
An organization’s priorities can shift in a matter of weeks, or even days, because of new innovations, competitive threats, natural disasters and more. To accommodate these changes, a single annual plan that the PMO operates against – regardless of what’s happening in the market – is no longer sufficient. A more flexible, adaptive approach to portfolio management is required. KeyedIn enables the PMO to quickly realign shifting priorities with adaptive portfolio prioritization and funding, ensuring the most valuable projects get the right level of focus, even as organizational objectives change.
Modernize Governance with an Adaptive Outcome-Centric Approach
The command-and-control governance structures of the past are no longer relevant in a business environment filled with a myriad of work styles and methodologies. Instead, PMO leaders must strike a delicate balance between the flexibility needed for fast, effective project delivery, while still maintaining enough control to ensure a quality project is delivered in accordance with company policies and past lessons learned. PPM solutions from KeyedIn allow the PMO to modernize their governance structures with an adaptive outcome-centric approach that favors agility and results over any one methodology or project structure.
Revolutionize Resource Management with Dynamic Demand and Capacity Planning
As project priorities change, resource requirements change with them. No factor will hinder the success of a strategic project more than a lack of the right resources needed to execute. With KeyedIn, the PMO can revolutionize resource management, thanks to dynamic demand – which automatically shifts resource requests as forecasted demand changes – and capacity planning, which provides an accurate assessment of the resources required and available for a given portfolio project, factoring in skillsets, time off, productive capacity and many other elements.
Drive a Greater Return on Investment by Aligning Funding with Business Value and Desired Outcomes
Strategic alignment – the notion that initiatives within the project portfolio support a company’s strategy and objectives – is only as good as the budget that supports it. Without putting the right funding behind the most valuable projects, alignment is just a theoretical exercise. Yet managing that budget can be daunting with constantly shifting priorities. KeyedIn solves this dilemma and enables the PMO to drive a greater return on investment by aligning funding with business value and desired outcomes. By dynamically adjusting budget and resources as portfolio priorities change, KeyedIn ensures the initiatives that will deliver the greatest business value – and the most strategic outcomes – are staffed and funded to succeed.
Increase Delivery Speed and Time to Value by Connecting Hybrid Ways of Working
Once a project portfolio is optimized for business value and desired outcomes, effective project execution becomes the key to realizing those outcomes. With so many teams typically involved in project delivery – the PMO, developers, designers, accountants and so forth – it’s unrealistic to expect every group to accomplish its work using the same tool set. Therefore, one of the key purposes of a PPM solution is to increase delivery speed and time to value by connecting hybrid ways of working. KeyedIn accomplishes this by bringing together a variety of project methodologies – from Waterfall to Agile and everything in between – into a single portfolio that combines complete visibility with faster execution.
Empower Teams with a Best-Practice Approach to Mixed Execution Methods
Different project methodologies support different project types. While Agile methods are often best for software development, the IT infrastructure team may rely on a Waterfall approach to deploy new servers, and many teams will use a hybrid approach that doesn’t fall into just one category. KeyedIn allows the PMO to empower teams with a best-practice approach to mixed execution methods. By integrating with a variety of key systems where project work is accomplished – such as Agile development tools like Jira or ITSM systems like Cherwell – KeyedIn gives the PMO visibility across the entire portfolio while still allowing execution teams to work in whatever tool suits them best.
Enable Teams to Learn, Adapt and React to Deliver Greater Customer Value
Improving outcomes and providing greater value to customers and stakeholders requires the PMO and project resources to always be learning. As a central hub for project activity happening around the organization, KeyedIn captures PPM analytics that can be displayed and analyzed in custom dashboards to help shape best practices and lessons learned. Armed with data-driven insights provided by KeyedIn, the PMO can enable project teams to learn, adapt and react to deliver greater customer value.
Improve Executive Line of Sight with Increased Visibility and Accountability
Keeping executive stakeholders apprised of the PMO’s efforts and progress can become its own full-time job as regular status reports have to be manually compiled and distributed using less-than-reliable data. KeyedIn changes this paradigm to improve executive line of sight with increased visibility and accountability. By bringing together all project-related data into customized dashboards that can be tailored to meet executive needs – and which feature convenient exports to Excel and PowerPoint – KeyedIn provides real-time updates on the status and progress of portfolio projects, providing complete visibility and organizational accountability. Plus, customizable data boxes to allow executives to manage by exception rather than spending hours trying to separate what’s important from what’s just noise.
