Kennebec Group has over the years come to recognize that while each of the organizations we have helped has been unique, their project portfolio management needs have broadly fallen into the four categories described below.

PPM Assessment & 'Quick Wins'
Capability Assessment

Are you committed to improving your organization’s portfolio management governance processes and framework, but are overwhelmed and not sure where to start?

A Kennebec PPM capability assessment will help you take stock of what you are already doing well, as well as highlight areas that could be improved. From this we help you to build a step-by-step roadmap that identifies 'quick wins' and other incremental improvements you can make to your existing governance framework to bring you closer to your ideal PPM governance end-state.

Portfolio Optimization
Portfolio Optimization

As you review your project portfolio today, or plan it for the next period, how can you be certain you are ‘doing the right projects’?

A Portfolio Optimization exercise can give you the confidence that you are selecting the best projects to align to your strategy, as well as maximizing the return on your investments. By helping you articulate and prioritize your strategy, then linking to it the benefits of your proposed project portfolio, we can give you the confidence that you are in fact ‘doing the right projects’.

Microsoft EPM Implementation

Project Server 2010 is at the core of Microsoft’s comprehensive Enterprise Project Management (EPM) solution, and is the tool Kennebec recommends to support best practice project portfolio management. Microsoft's EPM solution has for several years running been rated by Gartner as a Leader—the highest category—in their annual Magic Quadrant report of project and portfolio management software solutions.

If you are considering implementing this solution for your organization, we can help make it a success. The Kennebec team’s track record of successfully implementing portfolio management with Microsoft's EPM solution dates back to the early 2000s, and our team has experience supporting implementations in dozens of organizations.

PPM Framework Design

If you’ve decided it’s time to review and improve how your organization . . .

  • Develops and evaluates new project business cases

  • Decides which ones should be approved and funded

  • Manages your resource capacity to construct a portfolio delivery roadmap

  • Monitors the project delivery phase

  • Tracks project outcomes and benefits

. . . then we can leverage years of experience to help you design and implement the most effective portfolio management governance framework.
