Program Management

Getting optimization of project synergies through Program Management allows for the organization to have project cost reductions, resource optimization and managed project interdependence through process control not obtained when projects are managed independently. 


Many organizations practice project management as an ad hoc activity without having an eye on project interdependence. When there are cross-functional goals and objectives in projects, management ad hoc processes to place controls on these dependent projects in the short term; never maintaining synergies of control. Management selects a manager to lead these projects and loosely allow some employees such as project managers to participate in strategic activities. After the goals and/or objectives are met, the process collapse and the team dissolve; with typical feelings of disillusionment in anticipation of the next set of complex projects. 


This process may work well in for a time in static non-strategic thinking organizations but after a time there is staff turnover, projects abandonment and poor opportunity cost management. Program Management solves this problem by establishing formal processes and procedures that maintain these project management synergies. Program Management benefits realization planning is part of the Program management approach which aligns the interdependences between: 


  • Project objectives benefit realization;  
  • Alignment of Project and Program goals and objectives with organizational strategic vision, 
  • Centralized managed cost control therefore creating cost reductions, 
  • Increase efficiency of the management of resource demands for human and fixed assets,
  • An integrated approach to Project and Program deliverable scheduling, 
  • Management through Program and Project metrics and measurement, and

Project Management Information Systems (PMIS)

In industry, business has been organized and conducted in projects for a long time. Project management is regarded as one solution to the challenges of modern business world like accelerated product life cycles, customer-individual production and services, complex processes and high time and cost pressure. Although many project management tasks are supported by computer systems a lack of integration among the systems is obvious. There is a need of integration with respect to function and data exchange. The intention of this paper is to introduce a concept of an integrated project management information system (PMIS). The PMIS provides computer support for a composed set of project management functions and uniform data access. In addition, it contains three new components filling certain gaps in today’s support environment: a communication and progress control tool, a tool for building new project plans and a simulation tool for schedule analysis.

Virtual Organizations

  

If you haven’t considered using a remote team, you may be handicapping your business—it’s likely that your competitors are already taking advantage of its benefits. Fuel prices and long commutes are just two of the reasons that working remotely can improve both your employees’ income and your bottom line.


With a virtualized workplace, your overhead costs drop dramatically, your employees are almost always on time to work, and they may even need to take fewer sick days. Productivity will almost certainly increase, but only if you know how to manage your remote staff effectively.
