Double the impact of your portfolio

How are we able to deliver double impact in our Portfolio? Is the math wrong looking at our portfolio today or do we fool ourselves counting and creating business cases instead of focus on Impact, Flow and Leadership?

Introducing a PPM System with special focus on Integration and Reporting

In this presentation we will first introduce the company and the main requirements for our project management in R&D. When we built the new Global Project Planner (GPP), we had among others a strong focus on integration and reporting. In our presentation we will depict how the tools are being used properly by the various user-roles, which was key for enabling the requested functionalities.

We will then show how we solved our requirements for integrating with SAP PS, SAP BW and other third party applications. And finally, we will point out some key elements of our reporting, especially our swim-lane and Pipeline reports, which are automatically created in PowerPoint(!), adding a remarkable value to our management reporting.
