5 Collaboration outcomes from a successful portfolio management system implementation

Chris Allford

Director, Operations and Continuous Improvement

A successful portfolio management program requires a collaborative effort from all stakeholders. In today’s fast-paced business environment, it is more important than ever to understand the importance of collaboration and how it can contribute to your organisation’s success.

We recently configure Microsoft Project Online for a client to enable them to both “see” and collaborate on their portfolio outcomes. This work included the delivery of business intelligence dashboards give visibility to the organisation of the portfolio of projects.

MS Project Online Dashboard

The ability to see and collaborate on the portfolio outcomes is important for two reasons:

First, it enables better decision making. The organisation can quickly see which projects are in scope and which ones need to be brought back into alignment with business objectives.

Second, it builds consensus within the organisation around what the priorities are. This is important because it can help to avoid the dreaded “silo mentality” where different parts of the organisation are pursuing their own agenda rather than working towards a common goal.

In order for Microsoft Project Online to be configured, we had to understand how data from multiple forms and systems could be brought together and analysed in a meaningful way. We also needed to consider what information would best support project managers on a day-to-day basis.

The client is extremely happy with the outcome and we thought it would be worth sharing a case study of how important collaboration can be in portfolio management. The benefits that were realised as a result of this project are:

     1. Improved Visibility – When everyone has visibility into the project, they can understand what is happening and make better decisions. This improved visibility also helps to avoid surprises. More Effective Decision Making – By having a centralised location.

     2. Alignment with Business Objectives – The business intelligence dashboards give a quick snapshot of how the portfolio is performing against business objectives. This enables the organisation to course correct quickly if projects are veering off track.

     3. Improved Communication – By having a central location where everyone can see what is happening, it reduces the need for emails and telephone calls which improves efficiency.

     4. Improved Problem Solving – The collaboration nurtures portfolio problem solving, improves the quality of ideas and removed barriers to problem solving by breaking sown organisation silos.

     5. Improves the team enthusiasm – Collaboration allows members of the portfolio team to be involved in decisions that effect their work. This improves morale and productivity within teams since they feel valued and are more motivated.

Collaboration is no longer limited to the office, as people can now connect on any device from anywhere in the world. This technology allows for better communication across various departments and locations, fostering more effective collaboration overall.

Business Transformation Specialist Services – 2021 Reflection

Suzanne Thompson
Suzanne ThompsonBusiness Improvement Leader
As a highly accomplished Business Improvement Specialist & Strategic HR Consultant, I provide senior leaders and business owners with the tools and framework to successfully manage the complex and difficult challenges facing most organisations.

Whether it be finding solutions to scaling your organisation, maximising commercial outcomes or steering your team in a new direction, I can help you navigate this adventure.

Christmas brings with it a time for reflection. Looking back over 2021 we can see that our transformation work has taken us on a journey across a diverse range of industries and business of all sizes. Last year our industry landscape included:

  • Agriculture and Forestry

  • Manufacturing

  • Electricity

  • Water

  • Retail Trade

  • Professional Services

  • State Government

  • Not for Profit

  • Healthcare and Social Assistance.

All organisations have had a common theme….a drive for improvement.

Whether it be a lean or digital transfomation. we have had the opportunity to challenge these organisations to think differently and change the way they do business. Change is difficult, but we know that when an organisation has the right people in the room, it quickly becomes clear what matters most.

The common denominator across all of the organisations we have worked with throughout 2021 is that they are all looking to improve their customer experience. They have each recognised the need for change and have put in place plans to achieve this. The transformation journey has not been easy for any of them, but it has been worth it.

The results have been impressive with increased revenue, reduced costs and improved customer satisfaction. We are proud to have been a part of their transformation journey and we look forward to seeing more success in 2022.

If you’re not using the right tools, project management can be hard

We’ve all seen project failures, but it doesn’t have to be this way. With the right process in place you can ensure that your projects are successful and achieve their goals.

The best way to manage a project is with a structured approach, using tools like Microsoft Project Web App. Project Web App is an online collaboration tool for teams of all sizes that provides everything you need to plan, track and deliver your projects on time and within budget – from start to finish.

You need a solution that is simple enough for everyone to use, but powerful enough to meet your needs. We started using Microsoft Project Web App on top of our existing collaboration platform because we understand how important it is for teams to work together effectively. It’s easy to get started with this intuitive online tool and it works out of the box!

However, getting the right information to the right people quickly and accurately is a challenge. Power BI connected to Project Web App can take care of this problem for you.

While Power BI can help, it’s not simple to set up and make work effectively. It needs a lot of planning, research and attention to detail for it to be effective. If you don’t have time or budget for this then your project data will suffer – costing more in the long term than if you had just invested upfront in getting Power BI working correctly from day one.

We provide Project Management support that includes everything needed from initial consultation through design, implementation, training & ongoing support until we are confident that all users are happy with their new toolset & process changes. Our focus is on improving user adoption rates so everyone gets value out of using the project management tools as soon as possible – saving them time and money!
