In enterprise organizations, the development and implementation of a new program is a high-stakes venture.
Although program initiatives enable access to important opportunities, the risks can be intimidating. Time, budget spend, organizational focus—it all adds up and creates a scenario in which careful and thoughtful organizational leadership is critical to program success.
Sophisticated Program Management for Better Outcomes
At The Northridge Group, we know that complex projects require sophisticated and experienced program management. Whether you’re building a new PMO from the ground up or optimizing an existing PMO, our consulting philosophy is grounded in our belief that critical programs require oversight that achieves the right balance between strategic and tactical planning.
If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it, and you can’t improve it.
To address the complexity of multiple advanced programs, we work with your organization to create or optimize a program management office comprised of four essential elements:
Project Portfolio Management
The identification and prioritization of projects that generate the greatest benefit and highest impact for organizational and departmental goals.
Visibility into the right metrics through the development of management scorecards that enable transformational business change by providing a clear window into operations.
The optimization of resources in a manner that strengthens governance and cohesion across teams.
Strategic Alignment and Communication
The alignment of projects with business goals and improved communication across the organization.
