Portfolio Build and Change Initiative Prioritisation

Decision support to enable the identification, selection and prioritisation of business and IT change initiatives

We will work with you to facilitate the effective planning of strategy implementation by;

  • establishing a framework for categorising initiatives
  • enabling assessment for strategic alignment, cost/benefit (value) and risk
  • developing a clear portfolio entry criteria
  • outlining a Roadmap for delivery
  • helping you to determine whether to reduce commitments or increase delivery capacity

This includes;

  • enabling the identification of initiatives that cannot be justified
  • providing analysis of unsuccessful initiatives, to inform future strategic decisions and priorities

Feedback and measurement will be communicated to those responsible for strategy, providing insight into portfolio performance that can inform future decision-making.

Strategic planning may happen annually or more frequently, depending on the nature of your business.

We would look to begin the engagement with you as the overall business goals for the period have been defined, communicated and agreed – and as departmental objectives begin to translate into proposed change initiatives, with supporting business cases and investment appraisals.
