SSG Program, Portfolio & Project Management Consulting
With onset of the most recent economic recession, many businesses began to look for ways to rein in excess costs in order to keep up with an increasingly competitive market. One cost cutting measure was the wide implementation of project management offices (PMOs) across industries. These departments were able to maximize businessís existing resources for projects while ensuring completion within time and budget constraints. The results were so effective, that even as the economy improves, many companies are continuing the processes that helped them weather this difficult time.
In fact, roughly 40 percent of business owners now say they put more time into project planning and due diligence before making short- and long-term business decisions, according to research from the Project Management Institute. Similarly, the organization's study found that 60 percent of senior executives currently view project management as a top-three priority for their business in the future. This same logic is now being applied to IT portfolio management, as many businesses are looking to systematically integrate and maximize new IT investments such as cloud computing, Master Data Management, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phones and data security software to work in concert.
Due to the increased importance of both portfolio and project management initiatives, many businesses could benefit from the help of a dedicated consulting agency, such as the Ascent Services Group, that can provide assistance on challenging projects. Offering PMO formation, management, project prioritization, portfolio definition and more, the Ascent Services Group can help companies improve IT and business alignment.
The Ascent Services Groups' leadership talent categories
Despite the fact that many business owners recognize the inherent advantages of portfolio and project management, some find that they don't have the resources to dedicate to a team of professionals that can help them gain adequate control over the development of their initiatives.
As such, these organizations could benefit from the expert consultation of the Ascent Services Group, which provides PMO executive leadership, program managers, project coordinators and project managers who are expert in helping clients across industries, including healthcare, life science and IT, achieve their goals.
