Strong program management is a cornerstone for success in any business initiative. It is especially true in IT. Good program management supports the structure, analysis, planning, and tracking of IT initiatives to ensure scarce IT resources and expenditures are effectively impacting business capability, agility, and performance.
We help set up your enterprise project management office (EPMO) by assessing and establishing a repeatable disciplined program portfolio management (PPM) governance framework.
Our consultants typically begin with a baseline assessment and present findings to clients. We then develop targeted improvement strategies to enhance the project office effectiveness, including project estimating practices, demand management and planning, project risk assessments, and project manager competency assessments. In addition, Wavestone is regularly retained to provide executive oversight for an organization’s most critical initiatives while mentoring talent in order to enable the organization to stand on its own.
