Collecting project and program status consistently across divisions and personalities is a challenge for any corporate project management office (PMO). Some companies try to force all managers to operate within a common project management framework. Unfortunately, modern portfolios blend long term R&D projects with Agile sprints and support items, making it difficult for all managers to operate the same way. For these organizations, there is a constant struggle to balance the right level of tracking projects, issues and actuals with ever-changing reporting requirements and the need for high compliance levels.

Common Business Problems

ResourceFirst offers two types of integrated project status options. Managers may develop a detailed project plan with the integrated scheduler, or they can work directly with a custom project status form to capture key dates at a higher level. Both options are integrated with the database, and both will update status reports at the portfolio level. The integrated scheduler links task level estimates directly to the project level resource allocations and overall capacity. As a result, there is a referential integrity up and down the assignment chain. With this approach, project managers can track status at any level of the work breakdown structure. ResourceFirst also offers a straightforward approach to capture issues and manage them to completion. Issue status, along with other common indicators are consolidated into Scorecard View that provides insight into key challenge areas at a portfolio level. Scorecard values can be adapted to client needs.
