PROJECT PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT
The client had approximately 300 projects to prioritize, plan, execute and monitor. Project funding came from multiple sources and budget approval cycles were not aligned. Lack of integrated data made project portfolio budget and resource planning challenging and labor-intensive. Data was tracked in an assortment of tools, Excel, MSProject, SharePoint and PowerPoint presentations.
Determine the tools required to integrate data to allow management to make timely, informed decisions.
Collinear worked with all stakeholders to determine the tools to provide the optimal solution to the client. Then Collinear developed custom solutions within those tools to integrate the data and present it in meaningful formats.
