Business Challenge

Our client is a Fortune 200 Consumer Goods company and a global manufacturer and retailer of apparel footwear & accessories. Our client was seeking to gain insights and process improvements to an on-going release of HR technologies. An established program team was in place on global and local levels to identify business requirements, solution designs, and implement time and payroll systems across all geographies.

The key challenges facing our clients were:

  • Ineffective project management schedules, processes, and metrics
  • Lack of project management rigor and accountability
  • Questionable quality of initial rollouts – re-work often required
  • External technology partner not actively leading/managing the project or providing industry expertise
  • Lack of executive engagement and decision making

Client & Engagement Quick Facts

  • Three week program Health Assessment
  • Expedited project health assessment consisting of artifact review and interview of key program personnel
  • Analysis of artifacts and interviews across project management best practices

Our Solution

As part of the program health assessment, all program artifacts were reviewed and key personnel interviewed. The corresponding analysis generated specific strategic and tactical recommendations to improve the program’s future performance. Recommendations included improved project metrics, reallocated resources, more reasonable and detailed project plans, and a more actively engaged executive presence.

Business Benefits
