Demand Management & Resource Leveling
The convergence of portfolio and resource management to meet business and project demands.
As new initiatives come along, do you have the resources to carry out the work? If work demands exceed the supply of resources, what do you do?
ACTS regularly works with clients to address these business challenges with proven approaches to reach equilibrium and properly forecast upcoming initiatives within the project portfolio. In each demand management engagement, we focus on evaluating your existing project portfolio management (PPM) and resource management practices, and making the necessary improvements in these two critical areas so they function in concert with one another to provide essential information that drives intelligent management decisions and action

The first step ACTS takes in deploying a PMO is to assess the current environment and develop a deployment road-map incorporating your organization’s culture and operating practices. We will work with you to identify, prioritize, and establish a set of fundamental PMO functions and services. Deployment includes establishing governance standards, developing the PMO Charter and communications plan, identifying resource needs and performance measures, incorporating the right amount of repeatable delivery processes to fit your culture, and improving the competencies of your staff through training and mentoring. Emphasis is on the PMO providing an organizational entity focused on improving the management of your portfolio
