Aligning Portfolio Strategy with Transformational Program Management

Program & Project Leadership

The Challenge

Our client, a multinational conglomerate corporation, needed program management support to align a portfolio of transformational projects to the strategy of the organization. Aspirant was tasked with implementing dashboards, governance, and tracking to ensure that all projects and enablers stayed on-time.

The Solution

Aspirant assessed the current status and alignment of all projects in the portfolio. The project leads aligned on a roadmap of project completion, leading to more realistic timetables that linked between projects. Enablers were prioritized to ensure that all projects were building from the same capabilities. A governance process and dashboard were put in place to maintain alignment and progress.

The Results

  • Projects immediately gained traction due the portfolio being strategically aligned.
  • Time to execution shortened due to teams spending less time debating how their project fits into the larger strategy.
  • Enablers were able to get funding and prioritization to ensure that critical objectives were completed.
  • Leadership had more confidence in the teams and their progress from the increased transparency, increasing team morale.
