Recently companies have started experimenting with enterprise level PMO organizations (also called EPPMO) to provide program and division level attention to strategy and execution. Core focus areas include consolidated analytics on delivery status, resource utilization and financial viability. Resource Planning, both labor and non-labor, is at the heart of program level decision-making, and priority, supply and demand are constantly re-evaluated. In addition, delivery goals and targets are not the same when managing programs or divisions. Attrition, change and project failures are part of the forecasting model and are expected during the course of business. Realistic targets for project success may very well fall under 100%.

Common Business Problems

ResourceFirstprovides a single system for managing program level financials, utilization, delivery success and other target objectives. Labor and non-labor financials are driven from forecasted data or actual results as posted against subordinate projects. Multiple baselines and scenarios can be captured for future recall and analysis. ResourceFirst also provides a scenario analysis module which provides levers for optimizing the value of each portfolio, including net present value (NPV). Most importantly, all of the program financials and business analytics form a credible operational foundation of strategy, allocation and execution.
