Capabilities are an intertwined mix of all the resources available at a company for the efficient execution of work. In today’s business environment, organizational, informational, managerial, process and technological capabilities are often as important as a company’s financial capability. The importance of capabilities was highlighted in the 1990s when research showed that some companies consistently outperformed others despite having similar strategies, market positions, value propositions and pricing. Those leading companies were found to have superior capabilities that allowed them to perfect the execution of their strategies.
When implementing a project management methodology for your organization, Pyramid factors in your existing management best practices. Implementation is a collaborative process, with final methodology ownership in your hands. The methodology implementation approaches are designed to foster acceptance and make the adoption of a standard methodology welcomed within your organizations culture.
ARE WE PREPARED TO DO THE RIGHT THINGS?
Strategic Alignment | Are projects aligned to organization’s strategy?
Resource Management | Are resources deployed on projects with optimum high strategic value?
Portfolio Optimization | Are projects prioritized for capital allocation in a way that will allow the organization to handle events such as budget cuts?
Financial Performance | Do we understand the key drivers of profitability?
Fiscal Responsibility | Will the organization achieve fiscal year targets?
We begin by reviewing the project management and related methodologies you already have in place. We then identify areas where your project management methodology would benefit from enhancement and tighter integration with your other management processes. Working with your team, we make sure the resulting methodology has a look and feel that fits with your organizational brand.
Methodology Deployment and Ongoing Support
To successfully launch the methodology to your organization, we work in collaboration with you to develop and appropriate a deployment plan that ranges from conducting pilots to full deployment, depending on size and complexity. The deployment plan includes the delivery of methodology workshops led by our consulting team. Coaches are also available to work one on one with your staff on specific projects to ensure that the methodology is properly put into practice.
