Large Scale ERP Deployments using Microsoft Project Portfolio Management
PMINJ Chapter (C020)
meeting slides can be downloaded.
In this presentation, Alexander Rodov will discuss the tactical advantage
that PMOs must possess when it comes to “Large Scale Deployments.” When so
much is at stake, are you willing to loosen up controls or yield visibility
to what is going on with your project? When you have volatile scope definition
multiplied by scale factor, multi-national, or any other risk factor, we
are dealing with horizons that are hard to comprehend in just a singular
view. What is the best approach to manage something as seemingly unmanageable
like this? The course of action taken needs to best utilize the resources
that we have at hand: namely People, Process and Tools. PMOs have failed
to successfully implement this known concept in many Fortune 500 Organizations
which has led to numerous avoidable missteps that have come at the cost of
time and money. In that regard, reinforcing the grounds for People,
Processes and Tools are paramount to PMO success.
We will dive deeper into the PPM Framework for Large Scale Enterprise Deployment
