PPM implementations are not simple. They typically involve a fairly drastic organizational change with the organizational learning curve and pockets of resistance that come with it. They involve learning a new technology, making it fit in the larger IT applications “ecosystem”, and configuring it to your needs. They involve making tough trade-offs between tactical and strategic PPM objectives, forming a PPM core team of different IT professions, and establishing processes and operating procedures. We broadly classify these challenges into two categories:
1) Implementation challenges
Organizational change management barriers, system configuration errors, incompatible infrastructure, absent or inadequate implementation roadmaps, improper support and governance models, and more.
How can we help?
Whether a new or old PPM customer, we assess your implementation status against its objectives using a rich “tool box” of proven software utilities, questionnaires, and structured processes. We touch on every aspect of your implementation— ranging from infrastructure, configuration, organizational readiness, implementation roadmap, support processes, PPM development practices, etc. With this comprehensive and accurate picture, we tailor targeted and intelligent solutions while relying on well-proven leading practices and years of domain experience.
2) Functionality challenges
Unsatisfied customer requirements that are misaligned with the focus and direction of the core HP PPM product.
