Comprehensive Cost Management with WorkEngine – There’s More to Project Portfolio Management than Just a Schedule

 

webinar_icon_new2

Organizations thinking of adopting PPM need to recognize the 3 Critical Success Factors that must be met for a successful implementation:

  • Major projects must have the tools in place to manage schedule and project delivery
  • In today’s matrix organizations where resources are involved in multiple projects and also ongoing operational efforts, the resource management process must cover ALL work
  • Comprehensive Financial/Cost Management functionality must be addressed given current market conditions

This webinar will explain some of the basic concepts of financial/cost management that you need to address in your PPM implementation, and how WorkEngine can help meet these requirements. The topics covered will include the importance of handling multiple types of costs such as Budget/Estimate, Forecast, and Actuals. Also, why costs must be “time-phased”, not just project grand totals, plus how to handle Capital/Expense requirements, and how to analyze the cost impact when a project delay occurs. Additionally, we’ll discuss how senior management can evaluate multiple scenarios and set project priorities to best match overall business goals given budget limitations.

Please join EPM Live to learn how the WorkEngine solution can help your organization in today’s tough economic climate.​
