An organization has a finite capacity to execute projects, much like it has a finite capacity to make product. Layering on more and more projects, especially “priority one” projects, creates “bad multitasking” that degrades project performance.
A good Project Portfolio helps you run the optimum number of current projects while preparing you for the next one. By running fewer projects simultaneously, you can actually improve your overall capacity.
Periscope Consulting can build or manage a Project Portfolio on your behalf, balancing multiple strategies and requirements, like infrastructure, cost reduction, quality and regulatory.
We can also bolster your project team, acting like a force-multiplier for your key technical resources. If your key technical resources are great engineers, but don't enjoy project management, we can fill in for a number of project roles:
- Project Manager
- Construction Manager
- Master Scheduler
- Cost Accountant
- Safety Manager
- Operations Development
- Continuous Improvement
Most of our senior resources are skilled at multiple of these roles and can frequently offer a "two-fer." During quieter times of the project a single resource covers several roles, with reinforcements added where needed during the busiest times.
