With their available employees, IT organizations or companies with a high number of IT projects, have to handle more projects, and thereby more changes, at a faster pace in order to remain competitive and meet customer requests. How can this be achieved without expanding number of employees and capacities accordingly?
The answer: by allocating available employees more efficiently and with better prioritization. This requires transparency in the sense of a “Single-Point-Of-Truth” across all resources and initiatives (project and line) on a central database as well as a lean process.
Today, speed is one of the most important competitive factors, and the matrix organization one of its greatest impediments. Silos are static formations that hardly allow for flexibility or reaction capability. The organization must become more agile – in a first step “only” virtually.
The solution is functional resource portfolio management (RPM) – PPM 2020.
PPM FIELDS OF ACTION
AGILE PPM (Gartner)
Agile PPM & Digital Business
Digital business is pounding current PPM standards with the force of change of a tsunami and is not only pulverizing implemented processes and tools, but also making it impossible to control the company. Companies have to react to these changes with agility – and that can only be achieved with transparency. Without compromises.
Gartner’s Magic Hype Cycle predicts potential utility for “Agile Frameworks” (e.g. SAFe) only after 5-10 years (if at all). The most important basis, however, is missing – resource management.
Acute shortage of skilled personnel will become ever-present in the next few years. Studies indicate that in 2-4 years, only 40% of demand for employees with modern technology knowhow can be covered.
The critical path of all initiatives is increasingly determined by resources, their availability and capabilities. Unlimited or “unintentional” externalization presents an ever greater business risk. Conscious in and outsourcing decisions, training measures, and a strategic personnel plan should have been prepared long ago.
