We drive strategic, agile, data-driven optimization by assessing current organizational structures, practices, and processes and presenting findings and recommendations for improvements. This includes reviewing all aspects of portfolios, programs, and projects, emphasizing value delivery and metrics.
Strategic Planning & Assessments
We provide expert facilitation in strategic planning and setting goals, objectives, and key results. This includes leading Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, and Threat (SWOT) analyses and planning workshops to deliver roadmaps and relevant metrics. Our customized assessments expose program performance risks and opportunities throughout the organization. Combined with our Agile and Balanced Scorecard practices, we offer dashboard views of progress against strategic goals and delivery expectations.
We train federal and commercial customers on implementing a Balanced Scorecard with Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). As a Balanced Scorecard Institute Global Partner, our experts collaborate with you to build strategy maps and organization-level Balanced Scorecards that cascade throughout the divisions. We facilitate tailored workshops and conferences to ensure buy-in and transparent communication throughout implementation.
Lean Portfolio Management
Our Lean-Agile approach to portfolio management allows organizations to focus on the continuous flow of value. We stand up a Lean-Agile Center of Excellence (LACE) and portfolio governance, creating a collaboration space to share and implement operational best practices, compliance, budgeting, and metrics. It shifts the focus of technology efforts from projects to products for the efficient, agile delivery of enterprise outcomes.
Independent Verification & Validation (IV&V)
Our IV&V approach extends beyond traditional system testing into more extensive independent evaluations of an organization’s strategic plans, policies, and processes. We conduct deep-dive assessments of portfolios, programs, and projects against best practices and industry standards. This includes reporting findings with actionable recommendations on schedule, cost, risk, performance, quality, resources, communications, and organizational change management.
Dashboards & Analytics
We create interactive narratives around organizational data with visualization tools such as Salesforce Tableau and Microsoft Power BI. Data analytic techniques provide objective insights into information and trends used to inform decisions, reduce risk, and seize opportunities.
